Omicron Delta Kappa Provides 
Four Dances Via Cotillion Plan 

Four more big week-ends on the 
Washington Colleg'e campus are in 
the making with ODK's announce- 
ment of its newest brainchild — ■ 
the Washington . College Cotillion. 
This Cotillion will provide for four 
major dances here asHe from 
Homecoming and the Intersorority 
and Interfraternity dances. 

Prices for the Cotillion tickets 
set up by ODK will be: 58-00 per 
year, which would include admis- 
sion to four dances, and $4.50 per 
semester for admission to two 
dances. Those who wish to buy 
individual tickets at the door will 
pay a straight $3.00 price. — - 

Each dance will be sponsored 
by a different organization with 
each £rroup having complete con- 
trol over the place, orchestra and 
dress. Honey taken in by sub- 
scription and at the door will be 
divided equally among these 
groups to be spent as they see fit. 
Money allotted but not used will 
be returned to the Cotillion fund. 
At the end of the year if there is 
any surplus in the fund it will be 
refunded to holders of the Cotil- 
lion tickets. 

By organizing such a set-up, 
ODK hopes to assure each organ- 
ization a pretty good attendance 
at the dance plus giving them 
enough money to start with to 
make the occasion really worth- 

The four groups planning to 
sponsor Cotillion dances this year 


The attention of all stu- 
dents is directed to the re- 
cent regulation printed on 
p. 97 of the Handbook: 
"Students planning to vrith- 
draw from Washington Col- 
lege for whatever reasons, 
whether during a semester 
or at the end of a semester, 
must give advance notice to 
the Dean of the College in 
writing, stating the reason 
for the withdrawal. Failure 
to comply with this proced- 
ure will prejudice a stu- 
dent's changes of future re- 
admission or transfer of 

This regulation applies to 
all withdrawals prior to 
graduation, regardless of the 
reason. The procedure is 
introduced with no intent of 
prying into a student's pri- 
vate alTaii"s, but in order 
that the college administra- 
tion may have as accurate a 
record as possible of antici- 
pated enrollment from se- 
mester to semester and year 
to year, that it may know of 
conditions within its con- 
trol which are a cause of 
dissatisfaction, and that it 
may have an opportunity to 
extend assistance to stu- 
dents who are having diffi- 
culty remaining in college. 

are ODK, who is leading off with 
a Thanksgiving dance, Zeta Tau 
Alpha who \vill give their tradi- 
tional Christmas dance. Alpha 
Omega Nu who will sponsor the 
Mid-Year Prom, and the i'unior 
class will finish the schedule with 
the June Ball. 

However, there is one catch to 
ODK's plan. One hundred sub- 
scriptions must be sold before the 
Cotillion can be put into working 
order. The plan has been passed 
unanimously by the four organi- 
zations who will sponsor the danc- 
es and the rest has to be left up to 
the student interest. 

Tickets will go on sale next 
week \vith members of the four 
organizations listed above handl- 
ing them. Some one will be sta- 
tioned in the Snack Ear at all 
times to sell tickets.

Scholarships Awarded To 
Foar Outstanding Seniors 

At a meeting of the Faculty, 
September ISth, four Seniors were 
chosen, by virtue of their high 
scholastic standing, leadership, 
character, and other qualities, to 
be recipients of three scholarships, 
each of which is valued at 5125. 

The announcement of the 
awarding of these scholai-ships was 
made public this week by Freder- 
ick A, Uleigs, Director of the 
George A, Bunting Library, and 
secretary of the Washington Col- 
lege Faculty. 

The two Senior scholarships 
were awarded to Orem Robinson, 
of Vienna, Maryland, and Ruth 
Roe, of Contreville, Alaryland. 

The competition for the scholar- 
ship awarded yearly in memory of 
the late Dr. Mary C, Burchinal, 
'96, and Julia M. Burchinal, '00, 
was so keen that it was decided to 
divide the $1 25 between Nancy 
Grey, of Hagerstown, Maryland, 
and Pauline Koumjian, of Catons- 
ville, Maryland. The recipients 
of the Burchinal Scholarship are 
customarily women. ,

Art Club Returns To Hill 

The Art Club returns to the 
Washington College campus with 
a meeting this Fi'iday night at 
6:30, in the movie room in the 
basement of Bunting Library. 
Anyone interested in any phase of 
art is welcome. 

Freshman hazing has begun 
once again on the Washington Col- 
lege campus for the first time 
since the early days of World War 
II. Sponsored by the Sophomore 
Class under the leadership of 
John Grim and Harvey Leff, it 
was voted into effect last May by 
this year's Sophomore class. 

It is felt by the sponsors that 
Freshmen hazing will result in 
more class spirit, and, with that, 
more school spirit. 

Hazing will continue until the 
Frosh-Soph football game which 
is scheduled for the Tuesday be- 
fore Thanksgiving. Should the 
Freshmen win this game, the "rat- 
ting" will be discontinued; if they 
lose it, however, hazing rules will 
continue to apply until the Christ- 
mas vacation. 

Officers of the class of '53 met 
with Dr. Gibson, Dr, Livingood, 
and Dr. Clark last week and drew 
up rules and regulations which 
would be in effect during the haz- 
ing period. A committee of

We have heard of late several complaints concerning 
cur Snack Bar. Two of these are (1) The Snack Bar is not 
opened early enough in the morning and (2) It should be 
open on Fi-idav nights and Sunday mornings. 

We find that the Snack Bar is opened at the same time 
of the morning that it was last year. 

We find. too. that there is a pi-oblem of procuring suffi- 
cient labor without a price increase. 

Some have suggested that the labor be provided by stu- 
dents — ^this was tried previously and did not turn out satis- 
factorily, according to a business office spokesman. 

We do not suggest that the students be content with 
anything they can get but when we consider that the Snack 
Bar is a relatively new addition to the campus and that the 
workers as a staff are new, we should not be too impatient. 

We know that the Snack Bar is supposed to be operated 
primarily for the benefit of the students but not even the 
most demanding could expect it to operate at a loss. 

Let's see what happens and take it on from there. 

Are You A Rat? 

As can be seen on the news page of this issue, an at- 
tempt is being made to re-establish limited hazing on the 
Washington College campus. Though hazing may be lik- 
ened by some to the primitive rituals performed when an 
adolescent becomes a man, we believe that CONTROLLED 
hazing is a good thing. 

Often we have seen Freshmen come into college who 
are loud, boisterious and obnoxious. Some of them have 
been "big wheels" in their respective high schools and be- 
lieve that they know all the answers. 

We think that limited hazing which is strong enough 
to accomplish its purpose of bringing about a certain sense 
of humility and respect is not out of order. A man must 
learn to conform to society somewhere, why not start this 
adjustment at college? Ratting, too, gives a person some- 
thing to reminisce about in later years. 

On the other hand, we are not in favor of no-holds-bar- 
red system of ratting. A list of ratting rules have been 
posted — a board has been established to try all Sophomores 
who do not follow these ratting rules. 

If for any reason this board should fail to function and 
the rules are broken, we suggest that the Juniors and Sen- 
iors find out who is guilty and repay the culprits in kind. 

Practice To Start Today 
For W. C. Archery Fans 

Female hockey and archery en- 
thusiasts will be given their 
chance to start practice this after- 
noon when Miss Doris Bell, coach 
and instructor, initiates the girls' 
fall sports program. 

Miss Bell expressed sarptise at 
the number of athletes that failed 
to return to college this year, but 
hoped that the new girls who are 
in a minority this year will make 
np the loss. 

Once again this season, letter-

Senior Of ... . 
The Week 

Editor's Note:— The Senior of 
the Week is chosen because of his 
outstanding activities on campus. 
The Senior so honored has, ia the 
judgment of the Editorial Staff, 
distinguished himself in the or- 
ganizations of which he is a mem- 
ber or has made noteworthy 
achievements in other fields. This 
week's choice is — Eddie Leonard. 

Annapolis. Maryland is Eddie's 
home. He attended St. Paul's in 
Baltimore and 
entered Wash- 
ington College 
in 1947. Eddie 
was initiated 
into Theta Chi 
Fraternity and 
was one of the 
early members 
of the Lacrosse Club whose efforts 
later enabled Lacrosse to become 
a major sport at Washington. 
Past business manager of the 
Elm, his time this year is divided 
among presidencies of Theta Chi, 
Omicron Delta Kappa, and the 
newly organized President's Club. 
He is captain of the Lacrosse 
team and a member of the Varsi- 
ty Club. 

Eddie came to Washington 
College because his pai'ents want- 
ed to send him to a small col- 
lege and W. C. was "it". Major- 
ing in economics and minoring in 
histoi'yi Eddie hopes to enter his 
father's sporting goods business 
after graduation.

Erncst Hemingway once found 
occasion to remark on the "ever- 
shortening shadow of Li'l Abner- 
Thonias Wolfe." At the risk of 
seeming as great an oss as Hem- 
ingway I will remark the ever- 
thickening shadow of Gorgeous 
George — Ernest Heminway, for 
the man who wrote the beautiful 
and magnificent "A Farewell to 
Arms" has become the ludicrous 
bear who wrote the sad, silly 
"Across the River and Into the 
Trees" which was published three 
weeks ago. The book is sad be- 
cause it is an evidence of the de- 
cay of an artist; silly because 
Hemingway has become silly be- 
yond belief. It is tribute eno^feh

Last summer each member of 
the senior class received from Mr. 
Jones, the president of the senior 
class, a letter dealing variously 
with constitutions and Great 
Plans. (This concerns all the stu- 
dents, since Mr. Jones proposes to 
have his constitution passed along 
from class to class). Now I sub- 
mit we should not go about willy- 
nilly wi-iting constitutions and 
making recommendations to the 
administration without thought. 
The basis for the whole thing, it 
seems to me, and Mr. Jones says 
as much, is that the class means 
something in itself, which, of 
course, it does not. Mr. Jones 
quotes Franklin's maxim: "We

President's Groap 
Formed On Campas 

An organization composed of 
the Presidents of all existing or- 
ganizations on campus was found- 
ed September 20th. Formed at 
the suggestion of Dr. Gibson who 
addressed the meeting, the group 
is, in his words, "The only com- 
pletely representative organiza- 
tion on the campus." Its object 
is to foster harmony and closer co- 
operation among the organizations 

Eddie Leonard was named Pres- 
ident of the group, Ruth Roe was 
elected Vice-President. No offi- 
cial name has yet been selected 
for the organization.

assuredly we shall all hang sep-

cal. What exactly will happen to 
us if we do not "hang together"? 
Mr. Jones wants veto power. Now 
what on earth is he going to veto, 
and what possible difference can it 
make to anyone? He also wants 
student government, meetings, 
regulations, committees — a be- 
wildering mazel It seems to me 
Mr. Jones is too full of himself in 
the wrong direction. If we let 
people alone and remember why 
we are here "citizenship" will 
come naturally.

Two of the new faculty mem- 
bers of Washington College have 
been chosen to inaugurate an 
ELM series of faculty introduc- 
tions. The two men. Dr. Nich- 
olas Newlin and Mr. Peter Jonitis, 
were both formerly instructors at 
the University of Pennsylvania 
and are now working in their re- 
spective departments of English 
and Economics. 

Dr. Newlin 

Living the life of a bachelor in 
Chestertown, Dr. Newlin is known 
to be a man of subtle humor as 
well as the only man in Kent 
County who is able to tell a joke 
in true Irish. He expressed his 
opinion that Washington College 
has a very pleasant atmosphere 
and cordial student body. 

Long before he came to W. C. 
campus, he started college at Wil- 
liams College where he received 
his B. A. degree. After gradua- 
tion, he taught French and Span- 
ish at the Episcopal Academy at 
Philadelphia, and then was later 
employed in an insurance com- 
pany until he got the call of the 
pencils and books again and work- 
ed for hia Masters and Doctors de- 

gree at U, of Pennsylvania. He 
later became a member of the fac- 
ulty at that institution for sever- 
al years. 

Mr. Jonitis 

Clark University, Columbia, and 
U. of Pennsylvania comprised the 
educational background of Mr, 
Jonitis, professor of Sociology and 
Economics. He ia a family man 
and lives in Chestertown with his 
wife and twin boy and girl. He 
can always find time for a few 
rounds of golf although he admits 
his wife is the better half aa far 
as golfing is concerned. 

During the last war, Mr, Jonitis 
waa the director of the Army ori- 
entation program at Lovell Gen- 
eral Hospital at Fort Devens, 
Mass., and afte'.-wards, he taught 
at U. of Pennsylvania while he 
finished hia graduate work. 

Asked for his opinion of Wash- 
ington College, Professor Jonitis 
stated, "I look forward to teach- 
ing in a small college because such 
teaching affords one an opportun- 
ity to have small classes with dis- 
cussion. Also, more community 
spirit is possible on a small cam-

Shore-Lycoming Elevens ClashTomorrow 

By Joel Guandolo 

The cold snap of the past week seems to have quicken- 
ed the football tempo here on the hill as new candidates hit 
the turf in hopes of joining the ranks of veterans that have 
been plugging since last month. 

With the up swing of college spirit, that has been pre- 
dicted on the wav since the war, comes "ratting". We give 
it a nod with the comment "its all in how you play the 

This season nineteen new rules changed the collegiate 
football code slightly. An extra time out per half was add- 
ed, the center must now keep the ball stationary after as- 
suming his position, and free substitution is now allowed in 
ma^s while the clock is stopped. At last, a no-man's land 
has been set up around the entire playing field. No player, 
coach, pressman or what have you is allowed within five 
feet of the chalk marks. 

Grantland Rice diviated from the path his colleagues 
ti-ed this season and didn't pick Maryland U. as one of the 
country's twenty best teams. 

Take an afternoon off and check the soccer squad on 
the lower field. A miniature Honduras hustler is attracting 
a lot of attention from veteran legmen. 

With an enrollment of 700 at Lycoming College, its 
hard to understand why they dropped five games last season 
while winning only one. Maybe the location of the college 
which is in the center of Williamsport has something to do 
with it? 

Sports minded students still needed. Inquire via box

time under the whip hand of Filmore Dryden in preparation 
for their home meet with the Greyhounds of Loyola on the 

Can't something be done about medical aid for the ath- 
letes? Not only is there no doctQr in attendance at the 
games but injured players have in the past and undoubtedly 
will in the immediate future lay in the local hospital waiting 
for a doctor's attention. For example, just last Saturday 
half back Vinny Magliochetti was rushed to the X-day table 
with what was thought to be a broken ankle. A nurse took 
the picture and a hour and a half later the doteor arrived 
and diagnosed the case as a sprain. What if it had of been 
worse ? 

Half • Back MagUochetti 
Rejoins Squad This Week 

Scrappy Sho'men back, Vinny 
Magliochetti, who was hospitalized 
last Saturday during the Havev- 
ford scrimmage, rejoined the 
squad this week. 

X-rays showed that Magliochet- 
ti's ankle was not broken as fear- 
ed by the coaches. Dr. Fan of 
the local infirmary diagnosed the 
footballer's injury as a trouble- 
some sprain.

Montero Speaks 

By Jack Smith 

Coach Montero faced an audi- 
ence of experts from all fields of 
sports last iMonday at the annual 
meeting of the Touchdown Club 
of Wilmington. 

As one of the guest speakers of 
the meeting, Montero spoke plain- 
ly describing football at Washing- 
ton College and its possibilities for 
the year. It was his plain and 
sincere talk, never boasting of be- 
ing pessimistic, that won the 
hearts and admiration of the ex- 

Once again, Dim showed that he 
could fill the bill as speaker as well 
as a coach. Joe Ingarra's, the 
coach's companian for the even- 
ing, only comment was, "He was 
gi-eat." And so Dim Montero 
faces his second year as coach of 
the Sho'men. 

The squad's faith in their coach 
was summed up by their captain. 
Bob Herman, when he told this re- 
porter, "We should go all the way 
barring major injuries to our 
players. This is my fourth year 
on this field and I have never seen 
the boys working more earnestly 
for any coach." 

Coach Montero's basic football 
views come from such all-time 
greats as Roekne, Warner, and 
Stagg. Dim assisted Alonso 
Stage at the College of Pacific 
during the Second World War 
while recuperating from a wound. 
Stagg's three basic rules have al- 
ways been followed by Dim. 

These rules are quite simple, 
but very important to a winning 
team. The first one is the idea 
of working for a team, not as an 
individual. The second is simply 
to show who is boss by hitting 
hard from the beginning, staying 
on top and never letting up. The 
third is the most important and 
that is to be a good sport, win, 
lose or draw. Being a good sport 
after ■winning is often harder than 
after facing defeat. These ideals 
are vei-y easy to follow if one 

So — with eight games to go — 
pull down your caps, rub your 
noses and cross your fingers, we're 
going all the way. 

with blue and gold as the 
Lycoming College tomon'ow 
Pa. field. 

The Pennsylvania squad has al- 
ready played one league game 
with Susquehanna University 
which they last 27 to 0. The tight 
split-T formation that the Lycom- 
ing eleven used to no avail last 
week will undoubtedly be tried 
again tomorrow. 

In contrast, the Monteromen, 
playing their first league game, 
will work mainly from the Michi- 
gan single-wing, although they 
\vill mix in a little T play of their 
own. The locals have picked up 
a few more reserves since their 
early scrimmages, but the edge 
must be given to the Warriors in 
this department as the substitutes 
stand four deep at every position. 
Williamsport coaches, Vince 
Chimente and assistant Lee Baer, 
can be counted on to throw every- 
thing into the grid fire in hopes 
of a win. Last week's shutout 
added nothing to their predlses-

The quick opening plays and 
pitch outs that the Warriors con-

line a chance to redeem them- 
selves after their sliding perform- 
ance in scrimmage last week. 

Coach Montero will field a 
starting eleven that promises to 
start the bail moving. Nacrelli 
will be calling signals from the 
quarterback slot while team-mate

scholarship, established last year, 
is an award of fifty dollars given 
to one deserving Freshman wom- 
an. Persons desiring the scholar- 
ship submit essays on why the 
scholarship is desired, and the best 
one is selected for the award. 

Plans are also being formulated 
for the fall rushing season which 
formally opens vnih the Panhel-

Little Quakers Here For Home Grid Opener 

Rep. Miller Of First Congressional 
District Speaks On Election Issues 

Representative Edward T. Mil- 
ler of the First Congressional Dis- 
trict of Maryland, spoke last night 
in the Auditorium on 1950 elec- 
tion issues. 

Mr. Miller, a Republican, has 
twice been elected to Congress 
(1946 and 1948) from a demo- 
cratic stronghold. He has spoken 
to the student body of Washing 
ton College several times before 
and is an honorary member of the 
Washington College circle of 

Mr. Miller, a graduate of Yale, 
is a native of Easton, Md., and a 
lawyer by profession. For years 
he served as referee in bankrupt 
cy cases. In both the first and 
the second world war he won dis- 
tinction as a member of the U. S. 
Army. In World War II he was 
a Colonel in the U. S. Army, and 
at the same time, because of ef- 
fective work in China, was made 
a Chinese general, the only mem- 
ber of the U. S. Congress to be a 
General in the Chinese army. 

Representative Miller has long 
been interested in Washington 
College and has contributed val- 
uable materials to its library. He 
is presently conducting his cam- 
paign for reelection. 

Freshman Class Elects 
Temporary Candidates 

Elections were held last Wed- 
lesday evening, October 4, by the 
Freshman class for the purpose of 
electing temporary class officers, 
who would serve until the regular 
elections this November. The 
candidates voted into office were: 

Lawrence Wedekind, President; 
John Palmer Newbold, Vice-Pres- 
ident; Dorothy Willis, Secretary; 
and Le Roy Weisman, Treasurer. 

This action was taken on the 
suggestion of Dr. Charles B. 
Clark, Dean of Men, who pointed 
out that it had been the custo- 
mary procedure on the Washing- 
ton College campus during the 
previous years whe nhazing had 
been in effect. 

It was felt both by Dr. Cfark 
and 0. D. K. that the Freshmen 
needed some type of unification 
during the "ratting" period. These 
officers would also give the Frosh 
some official medium for voicing 
their complaints and suggestions 
to 0. D. K. 

Nominations for class officers 
were taken on Tuesday, Septem- 
ber 26 by Harvey LefF. acting for 
O. D. K.; and altogether, fifteen 
candidates were nominated. 

The purpose of forestalling the 
elections of permanent Freshmen 
officers until November is simply 
to give the class members more 
time to become acquainted. 

As yet no definite date has been 
set for these elections; but it ia 
thought that they will take place 
immediately following the Thunka-

Disciplinary Committee 
Expels Disorderly Pupil 

The first case to come before 
the newly-formed Disciplinary 
Committee resulted in the expul- 
sion of a student from Washington 
College. The student was found 
guilty of a charge of disorderly 
conduct for the second time and 
has been dropped from the college 

The new Disciplinary Committee 
has only recently been establish- 
ed by President Gibson. Its mem- 
bers include Dr. Joseph McLain, 
chairman, Coach Ed Athey, Pro- 
fessor Jonitis; Dean of Men, Dr. 
Charles B. Clark and Dean of 
Women, Miss Amanda T. Bradley 
as well as two student representa- 
tives. The two student repre- 
sentatives are Eddie Leonard, 
president of ODK, and Elinor 
Gustafson, representative of the 
Junior class selected by ODK. 

According to Dr. Gibson, more 
students will eventually be added 
to the committee. 

Registrar Resigns Post 
On Physician's Advice 

Miss Mattie Whitaker has relin- 
quished the responsibilities of her 
position as Registrar of Washing- 
ton College upon the advice of her 

"Miss Mattie" has served as 
Registrar since 1948, During 
that time she has processed the 
records of three of the largest 
giaduating classes in the long his- 
tory of Washington College as well 
as those of hundreds of other stu- 
dents. She will resume her for- 
mer duties as assistant registrar, 
FoBter Named Registrar 

Professor Ermon Foster of the 
Department of Education assumed 
the position of Acting Registrar 
on October 1. He will continue 
as a member of the teaching staff 
in education, but will give up his 
post as curator of the museum. 

Hazing Comm, Deals 
Oat First Penalty 

The first penalties were meted 
out this week by the Sophomore 
Committee on Hazing to Freshmen 
who had violated the "Ratting" 
regulation. Those Frosh found 
guilty of breaking hazing rules 
were: Ralph Hodges, Frank Von 
Ruitein, Dick Salkina, Herb 
Brown, Don Tabasco, and Laura 
"Beecie" Barnett. 

Dick Salkina, who was guilty of 
cutting campus, having no name 
tag, and, in another instance, of 
having no name tag in plain view, 
drew the heaviest punishment. He 
was sentenced to push a peanut 
around the recreation room of 
Hodson Hall mth his nose. This 
sentence was carried out last Mon- 
day night at 6:15 amidst a laugh- 
ing crowd of Sophomores and up- 
per classmen. 

Herb Brown, convicted of the 
same offenses as Salkina, was 
charged to act as doorman at Hod- 
son for one week during both 
shifts of dinner. Don Tabasco, 
guilty of not wearing a name tag, 
will have to perform this same 
task for the afternoon meals. 

Other penalties imposed includ- 
ed wearing signs, double name 
tags, and marching around Cain 
Hall with a broom from 6:30 to 
7:30 in the evenings. 

Five Injured In 
Auto Crash Here 

Two Washington College stu- 
dents and four colored residents 
of Worton, Md., were involved in 
a two-car accident at 11:05 last 
night at the intersection of route 
213 and Morgnec road. 

The two college students. Bob 
McLean and Harry Wolfe, were 
hospitalized for lacerations of the 
head, abrasions and bruises. Two 
of the three colored women were 
hospitalized, one for a fractured 
leg and foot, along with the driv- 
er, Joseph Asbury Gilbert. 

According to state trooper 
Extreme, a '36 Buick sedan driven 
by Joseph Gilbert was headed 
north on route 213. After the 
collision the car ran off the road 
and did extensive damage to the 
Jewel Brother's business estab- 

No statement from Bob and 
Harry has been forthcoming as 

At present both Bob and Harry 
are in Chestertown Hospital. 
Their condition is not critical ac- 
cording to hospital authorities, 

A hearing will be held in about 
two weeks pending condition of 
the injured. 

Draft Call For Fall-Time 
Stadents To Be Delayed 

According to official word from 
the American Council on Educa- 
tion, college students pursuing 
full-time courses who receive 
their orders for induction under 
the Selective Service while enroll- 
ed in an institution of higher 
education, and who wish to post- 
pone their entrance into the arm- 
ed forces, should request post- 
ponement of induction. Post- 
ponement till the end of the aca- 
demic year is mandatory upon the 
local Boards for all full-time stu- 

Pottponemant Defined 
Postponement is to be distin- 
guished from deferment. An earl- 
ier bulletin of the Selective Ser- 
vice providing for deferment of 
students who had been enrolled in 
college for a full year, who were 
continuing their college work, agd 
who were in the upper half of 
their class scholastically, was aim- 
ed primarily to provide for such 
students as received their orders 
for induction between August 1, 
1950, and the opening of the col- 
lege year. Deferment involves 
reclassification into 2A; postpone- 
ment does not, at present. 
AH students receiving notice 
for induction under Selective Ser- 
vice must note two points: (1) 
They must request postponement; 
(2) They must have an official 
certification from the college that 
he is pui-suing a full-time course 
of studies. Such certifications 
will be issued by the President of 
Washington College. 

None of the above provisions 
apply to members of the various 

The Athletic Department wish- 
es to express it's thanks to the 
loyal grid fans who added to the 
practice session this afternoon. 

It is hoped that a larger repre- 
sentation of the student bady can 
find time for the Sho'men tomor- 
row afternoon, 

Swarthmore Offers Recruits; 
Sho' Hot To Erase '49 Tie 

The Sho'men will be angling to hook eleven Little 
Quakers tomorrow at 2 P. M. when the Kibler field gridiron 
IS cleated for the first time this season. 

This will be the Garnet clad 
lads' initial scrap of the current 
campaign, wherein they hope to 
better their last year's record of 
two wins, five losses, and one tie. 
Coaches Lew Elverson and Paul 
Stofko are placing their hopes 
mainly on the new recruits. The 
return of only thirteen lettermen 
found the new comers filling gaps 
at the guards, ends and halfback 

Here in Chestertown, coach 
Montero has practically the same 
squad returning from last year. 
These are the same men that bat- 
tered the Garnets in their '49 op- 
ener but were deadlocked in a tie. 
Working from the Michigan 
single-wing and the split T the 
Sho' crew is looking for a rough 
afternoon. Johnny Wilson will 
continue to call plays from the 
center of the T while T-guard 
Nacrelli will shift back when the 
single-wing starts to fly. Rounding 
out the offensive quartet will be 
lililler at full, Greto at half, and 
Howard at the other half. 

Sho'men coaches, Montero and 
Apichella are expected to field the 
same "line herd" that ripped Ly- 
coming's forward wall to shreds 
last week. 

On the ground, the Shoremen 
have a long range attack featur- 
ing Miller and Howard. These 
two speedsters are capable of roll- 
ing over the chalk stripes for 
plenty of yardage. This was evi- 
denced last week at Lycoming 
when Miller broke away for runs 
of 67 and 73 yards. Howard, who 
wastes no time in starting, ran 
the opening kickoff back 40 yards. 
Three plays later he scampered 
for 23 more to hit "pay dirt." 

Swarthmore's eleven will be re- 
lying on a straight T-formation 
with few variations. Captain Bob 
Forrey, tackle, will be the main- 
stay in a heavy forward wall. He 
will be flanked by Asplundhr at 
center. Voicing and Raymond at 
the guard positions, Burns at the 
other tackle, and the combination 
of Blake and Franty on the ends. 
In the scoring department, the 
Quakers feature Francis. Swan 
and Cusano. Francis and Cusano

Players Start 
Staging Plans 

Serious preparation has begun 
for the staging of the Washington 
Players' newest production, "Dou- 
ble Door". The play, written by 
Elizabeth McFadden will be pre- 
sented November 16 and 17 in 
Bill Smith auditorium. 

Casting for the three act play, 
which enjoyed a successful run 
at the Ritz Theatre in New York 
a few years ago, was held last 

The play, a psychological mys- 
tery, was fii-st presented August 
16, 1933, at Southampton. Long 
Island, and subsequently produced 
successfully in New York by Potte 
and Hagh. 

The play evolves about the dic- 
tatorial actions of Victoria Van 
Bret, of an aristocratic family of 
New York's Fifth Avenue, who

'i Across 


River and into the Trees is un- 
doubtedly the most provocative 
book published this fall and every- 
one from Tennessee Williams, the 
noted playwright, to radio com- 
mentator Bob Considine have been 
talking both good and bad cracks 
at this novel. 

The Library is expecting its 
copy of this No. 2 best-seller 
momentarily and you can bet an 
old copy of Hemingway's A Fare- 
well to Arms that it will have its 
pages worn thin quickly. 

Descriptive prose, of which 
Hemingway is the master, places 
us in picturesque Venice, city of 
the gondolas, after the post-war 
reaction has taken place. He 
dissertates on duck hunting at 
some length in similar fashion as 
he has Jone in previous works with 
bullfighting and big game hunting. 
Colonel Cantwell, a busted brig- 
adier general, is the typical Hem- 
ingway man but for one excep- 
tion. Besides incorporating the 
bitter hard-boiled soldier and a 
warm, passionate lover, he is a 
connoissur of the arts and con- 
stant allusions are made to Italian 
renaissance painters and Dante, 
Venice, which competed with Flor- 
ence for the title of the art cap- 

Senior Of ... . 
. , . . The Week 

One of the most outstanding 
girls in the senior class is a brown 
eyed brunette named Polly Koum- 
jian who hails from Catonsville, 
Maryland, She has been at Wash- 
ington College for four years, 
majoring in chemistry with a phy- 

Are We Breaking Our Arm? 

In an editorial last week the ELM pointed out that the 
students would like for the Snack Bar to be open on Friday 
nights and Sunday mornings. A notice has been posted 
stating that the Snack Bar will be open at the above meii- 
tioned times. However, we do not credit our editorial with 
bringing about this change. It was a change that was al- 
most inevitable; nevertheless, we appreciate it. 

We are glad that when we wrote the editorial we did 
not climb aboard our typewriter and ride madly off in all 
directions. We are glad that we asked for patience ; other- 
wise we would have looked a little silly. 

We believe that all students and student organizations 
can profit from this series of events. In other words, when 
you start to bring about some world-shaking change, make 
sure you know what you're doing and then proceed. 


ital of the world, in the fifteenth 
and sixteenth centuries evidently 
incites this element with its mus- 
eums and shrines. 

Hemingway again present the 
dream girl, the girl who says "I 
only want to serve you" to her 
lover, in the form of a nineteen 
year old Italian countess who is 
referred to as "Daughter" by her 
fifty-one year old colonel. 

It is generally agreed that 
Across the River and into the 
Trees is not one of Hemingway's 
better novels but that it is an "in- 
terim work." You can neverthe- 
less not go wrong in reading this 
book, not only because it is an in- 
tensely interesting and engaging 
book with some prose that it is in- 

sics minor and has hopes of grad- 
uating in February. 

Polly is recording secretary of 
A Pi, the president of the Sci- 
ence Club, and the associate edi- 
tor of the Pegasus. With all these 
activities to her credit, she still 
finds time for the Washington 
Players for which she is treasurer 
and back stage worker. 

To work in the field of chemis- 
try is Polly's choice of vocation 
after her graduation. However. 
her future plans will probably in- 
clude Ed BesBon, to whom she is 
pinned. Ed graduated last year 
and is now in Baltimore studying 
to become a doctor. 

"Whatever Polly may do after 
she leaves, everyone at Washing- 
ton wishes success to a girl who 
really deserves it. 

Well, it's evident that school has 
finally started and that all stu- 
dents have settled down earnest- 
ly to try and grasp a good know- 
ledge of all subjects assigned to 
them. The latter point has prov- 
en itself considerably, especially 
in one particular case I know of. 
In an economics class earlier 
this week Prof. Bryan stated that 
figures showed the average Amer- 
ican family to be 1.7 persons in 
the 1930'3. Quipped a senior 
from the back of the room: "How 
could that be when it takes 2 
whole people to make a family?" 

Still in a class under the same 
heading, when the professor ask- 
ed the definition of alimony, one 
student almost came out with: 
"the high coat of leaving."

Gilded Butterflies 

— By Blom — 

There is. on this campus, an or- 
ganization whose activities have- 
long been a source of embarras- 
sment to me. Having, as I do. an 
abiding interest in plant culture, 
I looked foi-ward with great anti- 
cipation to becoming a member 
of The Monticello Botanical So- 
ciety, when I first came to college 
and was still full of romantic no- 
tions about the aims of organiza- 
tions. Imagine my surprise, then, 
upon attending the first meeting, 
to find the membei-s discussing, 
not the rapid encroachments of 
Panicum obtusum, but deeply in- 
volved in what they seemed to 
think was an important event — 
the publication of a new book by 
Arnold Toynbee. Swallowing my 
disappointment, I crept away, de- 
termined to remain loyal to Bot- 
any at all costs, and somewhat 
mollified by the prospect of the 
next meeting, when a member of 
the faculty planned to talk on 
Carcx microglochin Wahl, a 
sprightly Canadian sedge. 

In the spirit of the thing (and 
because I was interested in sedges 
anyway) I read all about False 
Uncinia and even, after several 
searches, managed to find a sprig 
of it out near the Ranch. The big 
evening was a failure. The pro- 
fessor had talked about ten min- 
utea, when the hostility of the So- 
ciety dawned on him and he sat 
down. I had wanted to ask a few 
questions but before I knew what 
had happened the meeting had de- 
generated into a discussion of 
Elizabethan lyrics. I never went 

However, owing to curiosity and 
a lingering sentiment, I have fol- 
lowed the Society's activities by 
reading its notices on the bulletin 
board. These notices make it 
abundantly clear that the Society 
knows nothing about plants, and 
cannot even use its own terminol- 
ogy correctly. The new president 
of the group has never, I am sure, 
even seen a plant. My disillusion- 
ment is complete and I can now 
appreciate the humor of Cc lliin::.

Sho' Legmen Topple Towson 

By Joel Guandolo 

The "beef-trust" takes the limeHght tomorrow as the 
chains fall at Kibler field. In case you haven't heard, a 
MAD bunch of Monteromen are planning to chase the so- 
called Little Quakers back to their Main Line showers. The 
story this reporter gets stems from mid-week communiques 
between the athletic offices of W. C. and Swarthmore. It 
seems that either Willis Stetson, Director of Swarthmore's 
athletic department, or head coach Lewis Elverson, passed 
the word to negotiate no football contracts for 1951-52 with 
the Sho'men until after the game. Needless to say, Mou- 
tero's squad concluded that Swarthmore was putting the 
game on a "if you win we won't play you anymore" basis. 
The majority opinion here seems to be "bury 'em and let 'em 

Jack Smith pointed out columnwise last week that the 
Sho'men were being coached by a man who put his faith in 
three basic rules — one of which was "being a good sport." 
Ironicly enough on the following day the Sho' squad was 
given the opportunity to see their coach, Dim Montero, 
practiced what he preached. 

The third quarter of the Lycoming game found the 
Sho'men scoring their thirty-second point with promise of 
many more to come when coach Montero sent word to stop 
the TD parade. The looks of surprise and disgust quickly 
left the gridmen's faces when they learned that Montero 
was thinking of the Williamsport students who were mourn- 
ing the recent death of their Dean. 

Miller - Howard 

r§ Scalped; 

Wilson Star 

By Steve McHale 

Washington College unleashed 
a powei-ful sing:]e-wing attack last 
Saturday that smothered the Ly- 
coming College Warrioi-s 32-0 at 
Williamsport, Pa. 

Spoetaciilav running by Joe Mil- 
ler and Ken Howard plus John 
Wilson's fine passing gave the 
I\Iaroon and Black the win. Dim 
Montero in his second year at the 
helm of the Shore eleven had his 
charges up for the opener and they 
lost no time going to work on the 
gold-clad Warriors. 

Quick Opening 
The Sho'men scored before the 
game was two minutes old. Ken 
Howard returned the opening 
kickoif 40 yards to the Washington 
46 yard line. Sam Greto and 
Howard in five trys moved the bail 
to the Lycoming 38 yard line. 
From there, Howard broke loose 
on a double reverse and went .34 
yards to the Lycoming 4. Wilson 
slanted over tackle for the tally 
on the seventh play of the game, 
then he converted the point-after- 
touchdown to make the score 7-0, 
W. C. 

The Sho'men had another scor- 
ing opportunity moments later 
when Jim Schafer recovered Her- 
bie Eisenman's kickoff on the Ly- 
coming 25 yard line. "Little 
John" Wilson moved the ball to 
the 13 in three tries but Davis, a 
Blue and Gold guard, fell on Cre- 
te's fumble at the 10 and Lycom- 
ing was momentarily out of dan- 

Still Moving 

Near the end of the first per- 
iod, W. C. started to move again. 
Starting from the Washington 40 
Ken Howard and Wilson alternat- 
ed in gaining a first down on the 
Lycoming 47 yard line as the 
quarter ended. 

On the first play after the teams 
changed sides, Howard caught a 
Wils-'n tcss on the Lycoming 15 
r r' 'Ji c a'Hl raced untouched Lo 

paydirt. Wilson again convert- 
ed and Washington led 14-0, 

Lycoming could not get a drive 
started so Bellak punted into the 
end zone. The ball was brought 
out to the 20 and W. C. took ov- 
er. The second play from scrim- 
mage, a faked reverse, found Joe 
Miller scampering 73 yards for a 
TD behind the fine blocking of 
Greto and Gardner. W ilson's 
placement was wide and the score 
stood Washington College 20, Ly- 
coming 0. 

Stellar Sho' Defense 
Excellent defensive play by 
Eisenman and Smitty Byham 
stalled a Wamor drive mid-way 
through the second period and the 
Lycos were forced to kick. Eisen- 
man returned the ball 15 yards to 
the W. C. 25 yard line. Howard 
and Wilson combined for a first 
down on the 33. Then came the 
most thrilling play of the game. 
Miller, subbing for Wilson at tail- 
back, raced around his own left 
end and "set sail" for the goal 
line. He appeared trapped at 
mid-field and again at the Lyco 40 
but each time Miller side-stepped 
would-be tacklers and swivel-hip- 
ped 67 yards for his second touch- 
down of the afternoon and W. 
C.'s fourth. Wilson's boot was 
blocked and the score read 26-0 
as the half ended. 

Final Marker 
The Sho'men didn't score their 
final marker 'til near the end of 
the third quarter. Wayne Mill- 
ner, who played a "bang-up" game 
at left-end. fell on Bellak's fum- 
ble at the Lyco 24 and two plays 
later Washington tallied again, 
Wilson tossing to Jack Nncrelli 
for the score. W. C. led 32-0 af- 
ter Wilson missed the conversion 

Lycoming threatened late in the 
game when Boodon blocked Wil- 
son's quick kick and Tierney re- 
covered on the W. C. 23, Wash- 
(Contimied on Pngo 4)

were members of last year's elev-

transfer from Columbia. Swan 
is stepping in as signal caller for 
the first time. 

The local eleven has been roll- 
ing through spirited workouts this 
week in preparation for Satur- 
day's titt. Mentor Montero has 
been placing special emphasis on 
passing and pass defense. With 
Wilson "looking good" on short 
passes to the flat and ever ready 

to uncork a long uik-, tliis week's 
air attack should be even more 
impressive than last week's rec- 
ord of five completions for eleven 

Little John Wilson (see cut) 
looks like a real triple-thr eater. In 
addition to his passes, he lugs a 
lot of pigskin and also handles the 
brunt of the punting. 

The Monteromen are off to a 
flying start. The Garnets from 
Swarthmore are out to upset the 
band-wagon. This Saturday fans 
will see a ball game and a half.

Atheymen Avenge Last Year Loss; 
2-0 Win Forbodes Honor Season 

Bouncing back from last year's 
defeat to Towson, the maroon- 
clad soccer club commanded the 
situation at all times this Wednes- 
day and defeated the Teachers 
2-0. This win gets W. C. off to 
a good start and raises visions of 
another undefeated season — a re- 
peat performance of the '47 sea- 

From the opening kick-off the 
Sho'men out-played and out-hus- 
tled the visitors. The inability of 
the line to "get rolling" kept the 
score relatively close through the 

Washington College first dent- 
ed the uprights in the opening 
plays of the second quarter. Jan- 
igan broke through the Towson 
kickofi" and his teammates showed 
fine passing as they moved down 
the field and set up the score, a 
short boot by end George Horn. 

The second score came in the 
third period with Hennandez re- 
ceiving credit for the point. The 
whole line was fighting the score 
from within a close range. There 
was such a mad scramble on the 
kick that Horn, Freeman or Twil- 
ley could have received credit for 
the score. 

The defense was superb with 
Captain Brower performing as 
last year— the offensive playmak- 
er and defensive spark-plug of the 
team. Goalie McHugh, playing in 

his first game, made several fine 
stops while the inner defense of 
Grim and Long was good. 

Experience and practice work- 
ing together should develop the 
line into the finest here since '47. 
At spots, the end of the first 
period, the beginning of the sec- 
ond and near the end of the game 
the line clicked beautifully. 

Freshmen Tilley, Branden- 
burg, first gamer McHugh and 
transfer Hemiandez bolstered the 
eleven and combined with the old- 
timers, should present a tough 
time for our opponents in the 
Mason-Dixon Conference again 
this year. 

Tilley, Hermandez and Bran- 
denburg give the favor, footwork 
and ball-handling up front have 
aided the attack of the club. Horn 
and Janigan on the wings, work 
well with the newcomers. 

At halfback, Brower, Ortel and 
Hungerford more than fill the bill 
with Lingo and Duckworth pro- 
viding the reserve strength.

dollars necessary to present appli- 
cation for a foster child. Much 
of the amount was obtained 
through the presentation of a 
bazaar held last November. The 
rest of the money was earned 
through bake sales and raffles. 

Under the Foster Parents' Plan, 
the adoption is financial only, and 
the ?180 provides for a child for 
a year. The child is given food, 
clothing, shelter, medical aid, 
schooling, and instruction in his 
own religion. 

Now that the A. 0. Pi's have 
made application, they will re- 
ceive from headquarters the his- 
tory and picture of the child they 
have adopted. 

Varsity Clab To

Sophs Sponsor 
Hatters Dance 

Washington students will have 
the opportunity of dancing to the 
strains of juke-box tunes in the 
Hodson Hall Recreation Lounge, 
tomorrow night from 8:00 to 12 
P. M. The Sophomore Class will 
sponsor the Mad-Hatters' Dance 
as their contribution to the newly 
inaugurated social season. 

The hightlight of the dance will 
be the selection of the queen of 
the dance from the Freshman 

Sophs Don't Pay 

Tickets to the dance are priced 
at $.50 per couple, according to 
Harvey Leff, vice-president. Mem- 
bers of the Sophomore Class need 
not purchase tickets. Their share 
of the cost of the dance will be 
procured from the class treasury. 

"No stags will be allowed at the 
dance", Left" stated, "as the dance 
is solely a drag affair." 

FrosK Advertises Event 

A unique publicity campaign 
was carried on throughout the 
week, heralding the dance. As a 
res'.'lt of a violation of Fi-eshman 
rp^ulations, Miss Beecie Barnett 
wa-i £;i\'en the punishment by the 
Sophomore Board of wearing a 
large sandwich-type sign, adver- 
tising the dance, in addition to a 
grotesque Mad-Hatter type of

year, on the nights of October 
19th and 20th in the William 
Smith Auditorium. 

Leading roles in this three-act

Although this play was schedul-

Varsity Club Plans For 
Homecoming Dance 

Varsity Club plans for the 
Homecoming Dance are getting off 
to a good start, they announced 
this week. The orchestra will be 
a Washington College favorite, 
Al Green. Ticket prices were set 
this year at §1.75 per couple and 
ticlcets will be sold by Varsity 
Club members. 

Homecoming for Washington 
College will be November 11 and 
the Shoremen will meet Catholic 
University on Kibler field that af- 
ternoon. The dance will be held 
in the Chestertown Armory from 
9:00 to 1:00. 


Added To Force 

Ml-. William C. Bitler, Custodian 
of the Grounds, announced this 
week that a new night watchman 
has been added to the force, bring- 
ing the total to three. This has 
been done in order to make the 
fire prevention program at Wash- 
ington College more efficient. Mr. 
E. R. Simpkins, retired grocer and 
farmer of the locali>% was select- 
ed to fill the new position. 
12 Hour Coverage 

With the former force of two 
men, there was only a nine hour 
coverage of the campus. The now 
plan will allow a 12 hour cover- 
age each night. This over-all pro- 
tection allows the college to have 
a lower rate on its insurance pol- 
icy. Investigators of the insur- 
ance company handling the Wasli- 
ington College accunt usually in- 
vestigate the fire prevention set- 
up at the school once or twice a 

The only buildings on campus 
not covered by the night watch- 
men are the fraternity houses. 
These are considered private. 
Last Fire In Bill Smith 

The last case of a major fire on 
the Washington College Campus 
occurred more than twenty-five 
years ago when William Smitli 
Hall burned to the ground. 

Veteran night watchmen on the 
force are Dan Wiley and John 
Kelley, each of whom have been 
here for several years. 


The first Student Fellowship 
Tea of the year will be held on 
Sunday, October 15, at 5 P. M., in 
Christ Methodist Church. Profes- 
sor Barnett will be the principle 
speaker. A salad supper will be 

These teas are held every year 
by the two Methodist churches of 
Chestertown. They are held al- 
ternately in each church every 
other week. Everyone, regardless 
T.' re'iTi' n, is ;irgi.-J and invited by 
t'.:c re'"owsMp '.o attend. 

Announcement of the 1950-61 
fraternity rush rules was made 
this week by Sonny Larimore, 
president of the Interfraternity 
Council. All rules set up by the 
Council have been approved by 
the Faculty Committee on Fra- 
ternities of which Dr. Charles B. 
Clark is chairman. 

The laws set up for rushing will 
go into effect Monday, October 16. 
They are as follows: 
Revised By-Laws Of The Inter- 
fraternity Council 

1. We agree that there shall 
be rush parties. 

Rush Parties To Be Given 

a. One formal rush party to 
be given by each fraternity at a 
time to be determined by the In- 
terfraternity Council but cleared 
with the Director of Student Act- 
ivities (the Dean of Men) in order 
not to conflict with other student 
activities. There shall be no lim- 
it to informal rush parties so long 
as they do not conflict with a

Seven men were tapped Thursday by ODK in I'ecogni- 
tion of their activities on the campus. They were: Seniors 
— Frank Brower, Don Duckworth, Glen Gray, Bob Herr-

Provisions Concerning 
Student Cuts Reviewed 

The attention of students is call- 
ed to the following statements con- 
cerning absences from classes. 

1. Students who expect to be 
absent because of medical or den- 
tal appointments, militai-y or vet- 
erans business, or on recognized 
college business must submit the 
excuse in advance of the absence. 

2. Students .absent by reason 
of medical or dental appointments 
must supplement the excuse with a 
written statement from the doc- 
tor or dentist within one week of 
the absence. 

3. Sick absence excuses must 
be submitted within one week of 
the absence or no consideration 
can be given. 

4. Absence does not excuse 
any student from an announced 
test. Regardless of the reason 
for absence, other than recogniz- 
ed college business, the individual 
will be subjected to the usual fee 
for a missed test. 

Dr. Gibson Attends Conference 

Dr. Daniel Z. Gibson, President 
of Washington College attended 
the Conference on Higher Educa- 
tion in the National Service called 
by the American Council on Edu- 
cation for October 6th and 7th in 
Washington, D. C. 

The purpose of the conference 
was to discuss the methods by 
which American universities and 
colleges can best contribute to na- 
tional mobilization. 

General Lewis B. Hershey, dir- 
ector of Selective Service, and 
principal speaker, announced his 
general approval of the college 
proposed plan for "selective de- 
ferment of students," The plan 
briefly is this: 

Students To Be Tested 

All incoming college students 
would be given a general classifi- 
cation test; a score of 120 or above 
would entitle the student to enter 
or continue school. His course of 
study would have no bearing on 
his eligibility. (Here an economic 
element is involved: If a student 
makes a high score but cannot af- 
ford to go to college, a proposed 
Federal Scholarship Bill will aid 
him, if passed). 

To continue his studies, howev- 
er, the freshman must rank abc/ve 
the 50th percentile of his class: a 
sophomore above the 33rd per- 
centile and a junior above the 
25th percentile. It must be un- 
derstood that this is merely a plan, 
and is not yet a law. 

Also heard at the conference 
were speakers representing the 
Secretary of Defence, the Na- 
'.i'jnal Secnriy Resources Bo:t"d 

and, in person, Earl McGrath, 
Commissioner of Education. 
400 Colleges Represented 
Over 960 educators were in at- 
tendance including over 400 col- 
lege presidents representing 46 
states. It was the second sucli 


conference within a decade, the 
fii-st being held shortly after the 
U. S. entry into World War II. 

Dr. Gibson, who termed the 
conference "very useful and very 
valuable" attended committee 
meetings on military and other 
training programs. 

Before attending the confer- 
ence. Dr. Gibson represented 
Washington College in the instal- 
lation ceremonies of Milton Eisen- 
hower as Presider.t of Pennsyl- 
vania Siatc College. 

of Towson High School, was guest 
speaker at the assembly. He re- 
ceived an honorary tapping for 
membership in ODK. 

Omici-on Delta Kappa is a na- 
tional honorary fraternity which 
originated at Washington and Lee 
Univei"sity. Its purpose is to 
recognize and foster leadership 
and to honor those men who are 
outstanding as campus leader?. 
Members are selected on a basis of 
points acquired by participation in 
college activities. 

Three Members Left 

Graduation in 1950 reduced the 
fraternity to three student mem- 
bers — Eddie Leonard, president, 
Duke Case, vice-president, and 
Fillmore Dryden. Dr. Charles B. 
Clark, Dean of Men, is secretary- 
treasurer while Athletic Director 
Edward L. Athey is faculty advis- 

On the Washington College 
Campus ODK has undertaken a 
number of activities usually asso- 
ciated with a student government 
association. Its major function 
at present is the distribution and 
allotment of the Student Activity 
Fund to the organizations on the 

Supervises Elections 

ODK supervises the elections of 
class officers and in the spring it 
awards Extra-Curricular Activi- 
ties Keys to outstanding students. 
The group also led the drive re- 
sulting in the establishment of the 
Snack Bar in William Smith Hall, 

Pre-Professional Test 
To Be Given Nov, 6-19 

Attention of juniors and seniors 
is called to the pre-professional 
tests which are being given this 
year. A student who is consid- 
ering applying for admission to a 
professional school this coming 
year should take the tests since the 
tests are regarded as an import- 
ant factor in admission. 

The following are the first dates 
that examinations will be given: 

Medical College Admission Test 
— Monday, November 6, 1950, 
Apply no later than October 23, 

Dental School Admission Test 
— Thanksgiving vacation. Apply 
no later than November 8, 1950. 

Law School Admission Test — 
Sunday, November 19, 1950. Ap- 
ply no later than November 8, 

Candidates for these tests 
should consult Dean Livingood for 
more complete information. 

0. D. K. Makes Request 

ODK requests all organizations 
that want allotments this year to 
get in contact with it at once. 
This must be done so that ODK 
can make out the year's budget. 



FRIDAY, OCT. 13, 1950 

WHAT'S., ..IN. ..A. ..NAME? 

Anyone can look up the propev 
names of their friends in a dic- 
tionary and find out that some 
great Roman or French scholar 
said such and such a name meant 
so and so. But . . - did you ever 
try to look up the nicknames of 
some of your fellow coUegrians and 
find out what they leally meant? 
Best way to do it is to go up and 
ask such charactei-s as "Choo 
Choo", "Mole", and "Froggy", 
and find out where in the world 
they picked up their name tags. 

Seems that "Choo Choo" for- 
merly known as Joel was playing 
basketball so hard one day that he 
knocked poor Me! Morgan clear 
through the swinging doors of the 
gym and left him in a stunned 
heap. As Mel picked himself up 
he muttered something about be- 
ing hit by a train . . . hence the 
name "Choo Choo." 

"Mole" Janigan claims relation 
to a certain furry animal that 
makes long ridges in the front 
lawn. "Just between the eyes, 
that is." As for Froggy — he 
doesn't claim any relatives in the 
animal world but you might ask 
his fraternity brothers. There 
seem to be two stories on how he 
picked up his name. Froggy says, 
"One of my pals gave me that be- 
cause I called him 'Bull'." Who 

Then there's the guy Al Capp 
borrowed for a model for his car- 

toon strip. Who else . . . Kigmy, 
of course. Or "Mumbles", the 
"Freshman dream boy". Did you 
or did you not say that you would 
answer by telephone? 

We can't omit the girls and 
their nicknames here. Most fam- 
ous, of coui-se, is Mackey Metcalfe 
as "Miss Chestevtown !" That's 
obvious enough ... she lives here! 
Or "Punchy" Shenton. That's 
obvious, too . . . are there brains 
beneath those blonde tresses. Miss 

Then there's the inseparable 
pair of "Sam Spade" and "Kutz." 
Sam's story goes to the effect that 
he was always borrowing "Wild- 
root Cream Oil" for that beautiful 
black hair. Of course, he's the 
detective type too!? And Kutz 
. . . you have to beg for the origin 
of his nickname. Ask him if he's 
ticklish and see what happens. 

Well, now you know what to 
do the next time you run into 
someone with a name that doesn't 
sound just quite normal. Here's 
some names around school you can 
work on, too. They have a good 
history . . . "Rip" Wood (don't 
ask him about "Daddy"), "Duke" 
Johnson, "Blimp" Elliott. "Bo" 
Dyer, and last but not least . . . 
"Pancho" , . . our newest soccer 
sensation. Lots of luck to you 
but don't forget . . . stand your 
distance. Some of these names 
have a deep dark history.

From The Files 


-By Blom- 

Last week Sandy Jones came 
out mth his constitution pulled 
low over his eyes, his cap pistols 
blazing, and a wicked-looking rub- 
ber bowie knife stuck in his Bus- 
ter Brown boot. I escaped some- 
how, though, and feel safe enough 
in my hideout to make some com- 

Despite the devilish cleverness 
of Jones, his dismal doggerel does 
not obscure his loping logic, as he 
probably hoped it would. There 
are any number of Latin terms 
commonly in use to designate fal- 
lacies — non sequitur, argumentum 
ad hominem, and so forth, but I 
haven't enough space to catalog 
the sloppy peregrinations of his 
mind. The one pathetic point 
that seems to struggle most often 
through the turgid morass of his 
rhymed prose (if it can conscion- 
ably be called prose; it certainly 
isn't verse) is that he means to pay 
no attention to me. That. I think, 
would have been wise, since it is 
always wise for politicians to ig- 
nore troublemakers such as I am. 
But why did Jones go to so much 
trouble and take so much space to 

ignore me? Well, I do not intend 
to ignore him, because I am in- 
tensely opposed to what I regard 
as a high school exercise in "civ- 
ics." Furthermore I do not share 
Jone's laudable virtues of fore- 
bearance and tolerance, just as I 
do not shave his Messianic proc- 
livities (all of which he enumer- 
ated for us last week). 

Just for the record I would like 
Jones to point out my absurdities 
and my paradoxes (they exist, but 
I doubt if he can see them). I 
would like him to give one in- 
stance of my having asked him fof 
advise. As for arguing — that 
happened but once, at which t^ne 
Jones went away after I kept ask- 
ing "Why?" Try it some time. 

I wonder how it speaks for the 
College to have an English major 
of above average intelligence write 
such poor vei-se as Jones does? He 
confided to me later that what he 
wrote had some connection with 
Eighteenth Century poetry. I can 
only conclude that Jones doesn't 
know anything about Eighteenth 
Century poeti-y. in sp'te of his hav- 
ing a better scholastic record than

Both students and faculty have 
been concerned recently about the 
illness of Mrs. Minnie T. Willson, 
Matron of Reid Hall. Recent re- 
ports from the hospital indicate 
her present condition is believed 
good, and she will soon be able to 
receive visitoi-s. 

"Mother Tilinnie". as she is 
known to all the students, is a 
native of Trappe, Maryland, on 
the Eastern Shore. She has spent 
twenty years in the service of the 
school. She first came to the col- 
lege as a nurse to help during a 
flu epidemic when Dr. Simpei-s ob- 
tained her services to aid In car- 
ing for Reid Hall girls. Her work 
proved so successful that Dr. Tits- 
worth. President of the College at 
that time, offered her the position 
of housemother for Reid Hall. 

When the new dining hall was 
opened. Mi's. Willson was asked to 
aid in its organization. For three 

months, she was in charge of Hod- 
son Hall and from time to time 
was called upon to help with the 


She has also planned many of 
the college banquets and func- 
tions. She was interested in the 
alumni banquets particularly be- 
cause she likes to greet former 
graduates and friends. 

Mrs. Willson had continued her 
work until her recent illness de- 
spite impaired eyesight. 

A report from the hospital dem- 
onstrates that she still has her old 
"Mother Minnie" touches that 
have distinguished her at school. 
She has adorned the top of her 
hair with a yellow ribbon which 
she requests remain there because 
she "likes it."

Bridgemrater-Sko'meii To Clash 

By Joel Guandolo 

Revenge via the gridiron is satisfying but occasionally 
a team forgets that rivals differ and the Saturday squads of 
weeks to come can catch fire and burn a bandwagon to the 
turf. The national football I'esults this past week-end 
substantiated this claim and reminded one and all that pre- 
dicting and pool-guessing with the leaders is tough. 

After picking only eight for twelve, this scribe has to 
pass along and thank the Maryland Terps for their con- 
tribution and blame the losses on wet grounds or some oth- 
er face-saving excuses. 

Drexel has been labeled the team to beat and rightly 
so. The Swarthmore game attracted three Philadelphia 
scouts who will probably follow the Sho'men right up to 
their October 28th contest. Field power of the Drexel 
eleven can be determined by noting their 13-7 win over 
Gettysburg last week. 

Keep an eye on that husky fullback Sam Greto to- 
morrow and for the rest of the season. This driving 
Chester, Pa. star "is beginning to show the great prom- 
ise" that Coach Montero predicted for him when he intro- 
duced the gridder to the Shore League. Few fans rea- 
lized last season that this pigskin idolizer played the major- 
ity of his games under tape. If the medics stay away from 
his door, the Big "S" will roll. 

The Shore eleven dedicated their Swarthmore win to a 
renowned fighting fullback who has teamed with the locals 
for the past two years. Late in the '49 season, a knee in- 
jury was suffered by this pigskinner and a summer opera- 
tion followed. The doctors advised this true lover of the 
sport, Jim Eiring, never to play football again. 

Athey's Boaters Meet 
Mighty Bucknel Today 

The Sho'men hooters travel to 
Bucknel University today to tackle 
one of the strongest teams on the 
schedule this year. W. C.'s trusts 
would like nothing better than to 
take Bucknell for a win . . . the 
biggest win on the yet — young 

Bucknell started its season labt 
week-end by giving Penn State 
their warm-up game. Penn State, 
last year's national champions, 
thoroughly trounced Buckneil 
11-2. This score should lead no 
one to think the team a pushover, 
Penn State is perhaps the coun- 
try's best team and Bucknell gave 
them a better game than the score 

Washington College played 
Bucknell once before. In 1948 
the Shoremen came up with a 2-1 
triumph on Kibler Field. The 
squad is at its best since 1947 and 
this game is one of the "big tests" 
this season. 

Pep Rally 

A Vanity Club planned pep- 
rally is scheduled for tonight in 
Bill Smith auditorium. The foot- 
ball team is expected to be there 
and Coach Montero will address 
the student body, Lee Cook, pres- 
ident, announced. 

Hopkins Bows To Legmen 

The Atheymen returned Wed- 
nesday with their second win in as 
many starts as mighty Johns Hop- 
kins bowed in the mud to the 
Shore legmen 3-2. 

Late Rally Saves The Dajr 

Early in the fourth period a 
hands penalty was called against 
the Baltimore Bluejays who were 
leading 1-0. Captain Brower 
kicked a marker into the upper 
left corner on the Sho'men's free 
try to tie the score. The hustling 
eleven fought to set up a sure mar- 
gin of victory but the sharp Hop- 
kins' goalie, Roesch, stopped shot 
after shot. Finally the locals' per- 
sistent offense "paid off", and 
Horn (0. R.) struck from the 
outside. Seconds later Herman- 
uez took a precision kick from Til- 
ley and went on to net the Shore- 
men's third goal. , Ealtimorean

but the locals were not to be de- 

Score Not Indicative 
The Atheymen topped the Bal- 
timorcans by one point, although, 
the field play of the twg clubs was 
not this close. The Hopkins' line 
played fair while the backs, turned 
ill a, performance considered poor 
by most observers. The , stellar, 
cat-liks: play of |the Jay's , goalie 
stood out along with the center- 
halfing of Williamson who exhib-

Quakers Plowed Under By Sho'men 
Fall Planting Score 32 To Sat, 

Washington College scored its 
second victory of the young sea- 
son last Saturday by swamping 
Swarthmore (Pa.) College 32-0. 
The game was close for the first 
three quarters but in the final ses- 
sion Washington power was evi- 
denced when the Sho'men tallied 
20 points to break the contest wide 

Pace Setter ' 

Joe Miller, sensational newcom- 
er to the Shore, paced the Maroon 
and Black with 3 touchdowns 
while Ken Howard and Herb 
Eisenman contributed one apiece. 
John Wilson connected with G of 
12 passes, one going for a score, 
and booted two extra points. 

The Sho'men garnered their ini- 
tial T. D. midway in the second 
quarter. Miller tallied from the 
Garnet 6-yard marker on the an- 
cient Statue of Liberty play. For 
the rest of the first half the teams 
were stalemated, neither being 
able to get a scoring drive under 

Late in the 3rd period Miller 
took a 16-yard Wilson aerial for 
the second countei iMillei add- 

ed his third T. D. on a ten yard 
jaunt around left end two plays 
after the final period began, Wil- 
son kicked the placement. 

George Plochai-ski recovered 
Dana Swan's fumble of a Wilson 
punt at the Swarthmore 11 to set 
up the fourth Washington tally. 
Four plays later Ken Howard 
slanted over tackle from the one- 
yard line. Wilson again convert 
ed and the score stood 26-0, Wash- 

With a minute and 25 seconds 
remaining, defensive standout. 
Herb Eisenman, intercepted a 
Swan pitch and galloped 33 yards 
to the Quaker 12. In 3 carries 
Eisenman rammed over for the 
final touchdown. 

MinuB One Yard 

In the statistics department, as 
in the scoring, the Sho'men held a 
wide edge over the Little Quakers. 
W. C. rolled up 242 yards on the 
ground and 137 via the air lanes. 
The defensive unit led by Jack 
Nacrelli and Joe Ingarra, held 
Swarthmore to a net yardage of 
minus one ( — 1) rushing and a 
mere 1-1 yards passing. 

Virginia Bone Crushers Out To 
Avenge 26-0 Defeat Of Last Year 

The maroon clad Sho'men take the field tomorrow 
thrusting their scoreless, undefeated skins against a bone- 
crushing crew from Bridgewater who will try to avenge the 
26-0 drubbing they took from the locals last year. 

Enthusiasm on campus has 
reached a new peak what with 
John Wilson, Joe Miller and Ken- 
ny Howard rolling up the T. D.'s, 
and Bennett, Gardener, Ingarra, 
and Cannone playing great de- 
fensive ball. 

T-Leader And T. D.i 

Wilson, leading the team from 
the T-formation quarterback slot 
has scored two touchdo^vn3 al- 
ready and passed for three more. 
John's punting also rates some 
mention. In four trys against 
Swarthmore last week he averag- 
ed 42.5 yards per punt. 

The two year old Eagle squad 
will field an offensive line that 
will find Corbett at center flank- 
ed by Tuturler and Metzer at 
guards. Callahan, the "heavy" of 
the line at 210, will team up with 
Dahl at tackles. The end posi- 
tions will be held down by Jenkins 
and Gorct. 

Co-captain, Bowers, directs the 
team from the quarterback posi- 
tion where he throws a lot of pig- 
skins. At the half-back spots will 
be Myers and Naylor with a fresh- 
man sensation, Roger, in reserve, 
Dick Dull will handle the fullback- 
ing chores. 

Battle Of The Air-Wsya 

This week's encounter promises 
to be a battle of the air-ways as 
Coaches Montero and Apichella de- 
terminly go ahead with their 
plans to put Washington College 
on the NATIONAL football map. 

Harriers Win 

The Washington College cross- 
country team scored an impres- 
sive victory last Monday on a 
rough, rain soaked Gallaudet Col- 
lege course by defeating the boys 
from the Capitol city, 19 to 42. 
Led B7 Dryden 

Led by Captain Fillmore Dry- 
den, who won his race by a con- 
siderable margin, the team had 
little trouble winning its initial 
meet of the season. Second and 
third places went to Paul Becker 
and Tom Benson who are veterans 
of last year's squad. Gallaudet 
then placed two men, John Tic- 
biero and Boy Boley, followed by 
Jack McCollough, George Eikel- 
berger, Ellsworth Boyd and Bill 
Landon, all of Washington Col- 
lege, The remaining Gallaudet 
runners straggled in far behind. 
Gallaudet Sets Fast Pace 

The Gallaudet team set a fast 
pace at the outset of the three 
and one half-mile run. However, 
at the half-way mark Dryden grad- 
ually increased his stride and had 
no challengers for the remainder 
of the race. Tiebiero, the losers' 
number one man, was soon passed 
by Becker and Benson with the 
rest of the Maroon and Black ag- 
gregation close behind. Although 
several of the Sho'men became 
lost in the deep woods through 
which the course was run, they 
blazed new trails and rejoined the 
race, most of which was run in a 
steady rain. 

To Meet Loyola 

The harriers have been vigor- 
ously training all week for their 
toughest duel meet of the season 
tomorrow with Loyola College. 
Other members of the squad are 
Fred LaWali, Joe Capobtanco, 
Chan Chapman, and Harold Gar-

Freshman Bruehl Elected Alice From 
Wonderland At Sophomore Dance 

Pat Bruehl, Freshman coed from 
Baltimore, was the surprise Alice 
from Wonderland at the Sopho- 
more's Mad Hatter Dance Satur- 
day night. Pat had been previ- 
ously elected by the Sophomore 
class officers but her identity was 
kept a secret until the Mad Hatter, 
Mole Jannigan, acting as master 
of ceremonies, presented her to the 

Pat had to come through a rab- 
bit hole to face her public so that 
her entrance would conform with 
the general theme of Alice's trip 
to Wonderland. The rabbit at 
the doorway, the playing cards on 
the walls, and the silvery branches 
were all in keeping with Alice's 
dream and created a properly fan- 
tastic atmosphere. 

Fun during the intermission was 
provided by Duke Case, Bill Rus- 
sell, and Mole Jannigan, who per- 
formed various comical skits, and 
by the judging of t he "hard to 
choose from" hats. 

Mel Littleton and Jane Mills 
won the prize for the cleverest 
idea with their ball and chain 
chapeaux and received an appro- 
priate rolling-pin as a reward. 
Margie Wilding's creation was 
juged the most original, and Dick 
Skipp's the funniest. Mackey 
Metcalfe also won a prize, a 
baby bib, for being the first to 
guess Alice's identity. The judg- 
es included Dr. Clark, Coach Dim 
Montero and Sophomore President 
John Grim. 

The Sophomores received many 
compliments for their ingenuity in 
decorating and the perseverance 
shown in selling tickets for this 
dance which began the social sea- 
son of the fii-st semester.

Alpha Omegas 
OpcEi Nu House 

The Alpha Omega Nu Fraterni- 
ty formally initiated the fratern- 
ity social season last Sunday af- 
ternoon with the first Open House 
of the year. 

The affair was well attended by 
faculty members, students, and 
parents. Guests were conducted 
through the house while a variety 
of refreshments were served. 

The local fraternity moved into 
its new quarters this past Septem- 
ber. The house, previously used 
as a men's dormitory known as 
"Jones Hall", has been completely 
remodeled through the combined 
efforts of the chapter and the Col- 
lege administration. The im- 
provements included the removal 
of two wall partitions, an interior 
repainting job, and the laying of 
p, new lile floor in the front room. 

Officers of the fraternity for the 
year include Beniie Rudo, Presi- 
dent; Sid Bare, Vice-President; 
Bill Trueth, Secretary; and Paul 
Sadiek, Treasurer. 

Queen Elections 

The Interfraternity Council will 
sponsor the election of the Home- 
coming Queen and her Court, it 
was announced this week by Son- 
ny Larimore, President of IPC. 
This popular contest was begun 
by IFC three years ago and has 
become an annual affair. 

The program for 1950 is simi- 
lar to the past system and oper- 
ates as follows: As now set up, 
there will be a Queen, who must 
be a Senior. Junior, or Sophomore; 
two other girls, also upperclass- 
men, who will be on the Queen's 
Court; and one Freshman girl, al- 
so on the Court. 

The Queen and the two upper- I 
class girls elected to her court will 
be named by upperclass students. 
The Freshman representative will 
be chosen by the Freshman class 
at a separate voting booth. 

In the nomination, or primary. 
election, to be held Tuesday, Octo- 
ber 30, upperclassmen will vote 
for the girls of their choice sim- 
ply by \viiting the gill's name on 
the ballot. The three girls with 
the highest number. of votes will 
be the contestants for the Crown. 
The girl in the Freshman class re- 
ceiving the highest number of 
votes will automatically become a 
member of the Queen's Court. 
There will be no run-off election 
i nthe Fieshman class. 

On Tuesday, November 7, up- 
perclassmen will again go to the 
polls and elect one of the three 
girls nominated in the primary to 
reign over the Homecoming. 

The results of the election will 
be published in the Elm on Fri- 
day, November 10, Homecoming

Freshmen Hold Secret Meetmg In 
Foxwell To Overthrow Soph Rule 

Freshman hazing reached an all time high on the 
Washingi:on College campus last week when a group of 
Frosh, took matters into their own hands, and refused to 
obey the "ratting" regulations. The Sophs had things well 
in hand by the beginning of this week, however, according 
to an authoritative spokesman for the Sophomore class.

tempt their rebellion at a secret 
meeting held Thursday night, 

United Nations Talks 
Sponsored By Forensic 

On Thursday night, October 19 
in the Recreation Room of Hodson 
Hall, the Forensic Society spon- 
sored a symposium entitled "The 
United Nations in Review." 

Featured on the program were 
three members of the Washington 
College faculty: Mr. Jack W. Hen- 
ry, Assistant Professor of His- 
tory; Mr. Peter P. Jonitis, Profes- 
sor of Sociology and Economics; 
and Mr. Edward R. Padgett, As- 
sistant Professor of Political Sci- 
ence and History, 

The primary objective of this 
symposium was to determine just 
how far the United Nations had 
gone in the last five years in 
achieving her original hopes of 
peace, freedom, and well-being for 
all mankind. 

Refreshments were served after 
the regular program. 


In order that the Granary may 
make the necessary arrangements 
all Seniors who plan to attend the 
Class banquet at the Granary 
Wednesday, November 1, are re- 
quested to sign the list posted on 
the Snack Bar bulletin board. 

Senior Class Will Give 
Sadie Hawkins Again 

The Senior Class will again 
sponsor the traditional Sadie Haw- 
kins Dance, it was announced to- 
day by Sandy Jones, President of 
the Class. 

The dance will be held in the 
Hodson lounge Saturday, Novem- 
ber 18. A unique feature of the 
dance is that the girls ask the boys 
for dates and pay all expenses. The 
dance is the most informal of the

Graduation Plans 

At a meeting last Tuesday the 
class voted to retain the Latin di- 
plomas as well as the traditional 
hoods at their Commencement cer- 
emonies, June 3, 1951. Arrange- 
ments have been made for the 
formal Commencement announce- 
ments, and they may be ordered 
through the bookstore. Arrange- 
ments are also being made for the 
procurement of caps and gowns. 
Details will be announced later. 

Dr. Gibson Talks 
Before Rotary 

The Chestertown Rotary Club 
entertained the Washington Col- 
lege faculty on Monday evening, 
October 16, at dinner at the Ches- 
ter River Yacht and Country Club. 
Dr. Daniel Z. Gibson, President of 
the College, addressed the group. 
He pointed out that the College 
has a rich tradition of heritage. 
Quoting from a letter of George 
Washington, written in 1789, to 
the Board of Visitors and Gover- 
nors, Dr. Gibson cited this pas- 
sage as indicative of the dream of 
the father of the country concern- 
ing the College: 

"It atTords me peculiar pleas- 
ure to know that the Seat of 
Learning under your direction 
hath attained to such proficiency 
in the Sciences since the Peace; 
and I sincerely pray the great 
Author of the Universe may smile 
upon the Institution, and make it 
an extensive blessing to this coun- 

Dr. Gibson then spoke of the 
progress made by the College | 
through the yeai-s and the ways in 
which this dream had been fulfill- 
ed. The speaker also pointed out, 
however, that there are certain 
ways in which the dream may be 
said to lack fulfillment. Among 
the needs of the College as Presi- 
dent Gibson sees them at present, 
ho mentioned greater financial 
support, more adequate dormitor- 
ies, larger female enrollment, ex-

October 12 in Foxwell Hall, 
which the majority of the Fresh- 
men boys were present. The 
Sophomores knew nothing of this 
move until Friday morning, when 
large groups of Frosh were seen 
without their "rat" caps and name 

This, in itself, did not excite the 
wrath of the Sophs too greatly; 
but when only a few Freshmen 
turned up for the pep rally on Fri- 
day night, feelings flared high 
among Sophomores and upper- 
classmen both. 

Armed with paddles borrowed 
from the fraternity houses, and 
aided by members of the Varsity 
Club, the Sophomores raided Fox- 
well Hall, turned Freshmen rooms 
topsy-turvy, and literally dragged 
Frosh from their principal strong- 
hold up to Cain Hall, where the 
pep rally was still in progress. 

Monday morning, October 10, 
committees from both the Frosh 
and the Sophs met with the Dean 
of Men, Dr. Charles B. Clark; 
and. with the threat of disciplinary 
action hanging over them, the 
Freshmen capitulated and agreed 
to abide by the terms of the Soph- 
omore Committee on Hazing. 

A member of this committee 
stated that Freshmen who had par- 
ticipated in the rebellion would 
have severe penalties meted out 
to them. 

W. C. Is Invited To Attend

The pride and joy of Washing- 
ton College — the object of a 
thousand practical jokes — the 
black haired friend who will nev- 
er pass a blue book nor will he 
flunk one — and the only one who 
can get away with open stealing 
in the Snack Bar. If you don't 
know now, you never will, its Al- 
bert, the veiT congenial canine 
that is everyone's best friend. 

Albert, however, is a chamelion 
type animal in that he has a dif- 
ferent name for each of his friends 
to call him. Through thorough 
research and through questioning 
Albert himself, it has been found 
that Albert's real name is Pepper, 
but you could call him Joe and he 
would come running like you were 
a long lost friend. 

There's something about this 
insolent black dog that has cap- 
tured the hearts of all Washing- 
tonians, particularly those who 
spend a great deal of time in the 
Snack Bar. He is notorious for 
stealing your donuts while you are 
getting your second cup of coffee 
and for wagging his tail under the 
table, upsetting books and all the 
dishes, but everyone still likes him. 
The Forensic sponsored Politi- 
cal Rallies, a Thursday night hab- 
it, have also interested the "dog 
of a thousand names." At the 
latest meeting in the interest of 
politics, Albert made a grand en- 
trance on to the stage, mistook the 
stage curtains for a fire plug and 
politely left the forum. 

Albert has a terrific school spir- 
it except that he fraternizes too 
freely with the opposing team's 
mascots. He viewed the Swarth- 
more - W. C. game in the com- 
pany of a big white animal from 
Philadelphia. It has been said 
that Albert is in on all the secret 
plays of the football team. We 
hope he uses his head while in 
such company- The score seem- 
ed to prove that however. 

As for Albert's personal life 
. . . we know he eats Red Heart 
Dog Foofl along with the con- 
glomeration of food from the 
Snack Bar and Hodson Hall. (He 
wears a Red Heart tag that may 
be gotten for 25c and a wrapper). 
He also has a crooked tail that 
some have heard tell was caught 
in a screen door. He likes to 
get up early - . . Bob Jackson and 
Mel Littleton will vouch for that 
... he used to be their personal 
alarm clock. He doesn't get along 
too well with goats as was wit- 

nessed the day the Animal Show 
came to Chesterto\vn. He took 
one look at "Billy" . . - and flew 

the other way. 

Albert, or Pepper, or whatevtr 
you want to call him . . . may have 
lots of faults, but he is a good 
sport, has a wonderful sense of 
humor and we would really miss 
him if he ever decided to take a 
post graduate course somewhere 



Congratulations to Pat Bniehl 
on being Freshman Queen at the 
dance Saturday night. She sho' 
was a cute choice. 

"Jloose," I'm sorry I didn't 
know your name was such a deep, 
dark secret. 

Orchids to the Nu's for their 
teiTific Open House on Sunday. 
Jones Hall certainly has improv- 
ed! Orchids, also, to the Soph- 
omores for their decorations at 
the dance, the best this gal's seen 
in a long time, 

John Stewart how's the "Clark 
Bar" these days? 

We hear that Mel Morgan is 
weeping in his beer over a broken 
heart. Too bad that LITTLE 
Freshman gals fall for track stars. 
Wayne's laundry business is 
growing by leaps and bounds — 
you see he Luxs things just beau- 

"Do" really had herself quite a 
birthday party the other night; in 
fact it was so good that everyone 
was in clover. 

"Eole", honey-chile, was is your 

Emo's literary accomplishments 
during the wee hours of the morn- 
ing certainly are outstanding. We 
have that iron lung ordered for 
you, Sterno, just say the word and 
it's yours. 

That's all for now — "Mom, 
take me home!" 

bounio feels that they may need 
him again. So despite the efforts 
of Dr. Gibson, Dr. Clark and Dean 
Livingood. Robbie is scheduled to 
leave W. C. this week. 

During his stay here he has 
majored in History, minored in 
English, been active in Sigma Sig- 
ma Omicron, the student academic 
honor society, and is this year's 
president. For two years he has 
been student assistant in the de- 
partment of history and political 
science. This year he was award- 
ed the faculty "senior scholar- 
ship." This award is made by a 
vote of the faculty on the basis of 
scholax-ship, intellectual promise. 
personality and character. 

Robbie also belongs to the mar- 
ried set on campus, claiming a 
pretty brunette wife and a 1'-^ 
year old daughter. He has spent 
several of his summers playing 
"pro" baseball with the Brooklyn 
Dodger's fai-m club ... a recent 
arm injury will prevent him fol- 
lowing up any big league tenden- 

We hope you stay here, Robbie, 
but just in case you can't — best 
of luck and success from every- 
one at W^ C, 

Plans Proposed To 
Merge Three Clubs 

At the last business meeting of 
the Forensic Society it was pro- 
posed to merge both the proposed 
Sociology Club and the Economics 
Club into the Forensic Society as 
a seperate division. 

This suggestion was made by 
Dr. Charles B. Clark, faculty ad- 
visor to the Forensic Society, who 
pointed out that there were al- 
ready a great sui-plus of organi- 
zations on the campus, and such a 
merger could greatly help bring 
up the Forensic enrollment. 

As yet, no definite action has 
been taken on it; but it is expect- 
ed that something will be done 
within the next two weeks. 

Fred Nixon, President of the 
Society, also announced yesterday 
that John Bylund has been ap- 
pointed Vice-President in charge 
of debate. This position had been 
vacant since John Woodfield en- 
listed in the Army Air Force. 

Art Clab Formed 
Elects OfHcers 

The newly formed Art Club has 
elected officers for the coming 
year. They are: Mole Janigan, 
President; Peggy Brimer, Vice- 
President; and Jane Mills, Secre- 
tary-Treasurer. The Club is un- 
der the sponsorship of Dr. Walter 

The purpose of this new club is 
to further the expression of the 
artistic abilities of the students. 
Thes have set up a studio to be 
used for this pm-pose in the old 
radio room in William Smith Hall. 

Canterbury Club

Conference Toughies Tussle Tomor rov\A, 
Macon Homecoming Test For Shopmen 

By Joel Guandolo 

New coaches, homecoming, sph'ited rebels and light- 
ening brawn face the Sho'men tomorrow with one thought 
in mind — defeat. 

Statistics fail to show the power massed below the 
Mason-Dixon line. A five point league win over C. U. last 
week is also not indicative as the Yellow Jackets were in the 
process of changing from a two platoon system to the old 
eleven man - 60 minute game. Montero. aware of the 
threat to his undefeated team, has had the Sho'men work- 
ing well into the night for the past week. Hour after hour 
of hand offs and fakes was the lot of the gym clad gridders. 
As the week ends, perfection seemed certain to grace the 
carefully planned Montero strategy. The Shore team is 
ready but anything can happen in a homecoming game. 

Now that the boards have been warmed. Athey's ver- 
sion of the '51 Flying Pentagon can start practicing. Cage 
drill starts this Monday afternoon for all varsity candi- 
dates. To date only one scrimmage has been scheduled. 
The squad will travel to Annapolis on December First to 
meet mighty Navy, Other preseason contests will un- 
doubtedly be played up and down the Shore in preparation 
for what promises to be a banner year. 

The energetic freshmen take to the woods Monday in 
search of bonfire material for the homecoming week-end, 
November 11th. From all reports, it is going to be the big- 
gest and "bestest" yet. 

The so called "games of skill" printed on technicolor 
cards and peddled nationally by the shadowy guy who's al- 
ways in a hurry are hitting the sucker jackpot again this 
year. Neophytes and experts pay their quarters, dollars 
or what have you and guess away trying to beat the syudi- 
cates. These Friday morning quarterbacks have pushed 
the Monday morning alibiers into the background. Cam- 
pus backers as well as office workers keep the illegal ball 
rolling from year to year while the syndicate-boys retire 
to their mansions. 

(Ed. note. — F. B. I. agents broke up the largest foot- 
ball, card-pool syndicate in the country eight hours after this 
column had been written). 

Congratulations are in order for Indians Rip Wood 
and Jack Jackson (see story) who were honored this week 
by the Ail-American Lacrosse committee. 

All-Star Lacrosse Team Picked; 
¥/ood On, J, Jackson 

Two Washington College La- 
crosse stai-s of the 1950 team that 
won ten of thirteen games have 
been naniod to the 1950 Ail-Amer- 
ican Squad, as recently announc- 
ed by the U. S. Intercollegiate La- 
crosse Association. 

Ray Wood, star attackman for 
the Shoremen for the last three 
seasons, was picked on the third 
team close attack to team up with 
Oliver "Corky" Shepard of the 
Johns Hopkins collegiate cham- 
pionship team, and Rod Boyce of 
Duke University. Indicating thi.' 
improvement in play in 1950 is the 
fact that Shepard, a first team 
choice in 1949, was a third string 
choice in 1950. Other members 
of the team on which Wood was 
picked were Adams of Hopkins, 
Meyer of Army, and Cody of Syr- 
acuse at midfield; Gilfallon of 
Duke, Maladowitz of Army, and 
Murphy of Maryland at defense; 
and O'Connell of Williams at 

.Tad! Jackson, center on the W. 
C. 1950 team, was given honorable 
mention on the All-American 
squad. Jackson is now studying 
Law at the University of Mary- 

In commenting upon the selec- 
tion of Wood and Jackson, Coach 
Charley Clark stated that he was 
delighted this recognition has 
come to two very deserving play- 
ers. He added that he was con- 
vinced Wood's play could earn him 
a regular berth on any team in the 
r "ii IV. rnd that had lie been a 
1. ^ . - ne :>'. big "n;inK-'"

teams in Lacrosse he would be

another season to play, Wood still 

a chance to win liigher rucog- 
uition. Based upon their play 
last season, several other members 
of the local squad will be gunning 
for recognition next spring, Coach 
Clark stated. 

Fii-st team All-American posi- 
tions went to Clements of W. & L. 
at goal; Ryan of Navy, Bunting of 
Hopkins, and Yellott of Yale at 
defense; Sandell of Hopkins, Ful- 
ler of Syracuse, and Coons of 
RPI at midfield; and Hooper, of 
Virginia, Powell of RPI, and Hahn 
of Princeton at attack.

One-Half Down With Order 

The Washington College Sho'- 
men garnered their third succes- 
sive victory of the current cam- 
paign by trouncing Bridgewater 
(Va.) College 34-0 last Saturday 
at Kibler Field. 

Sam Greto and Joe Miller led 
the touchdown parade with two 
markers apiece while Bernie 
O'Connell chipped in with one. 
Miller's scores came on passes 
from Little John Wilson while 
Greto's were on bucks of 1 and 5 
yards, respectively, O'Connell 
registered by covering Miller's 
fumble in the end zone. The 
Maroon and Black had 3 T, D.s 
called back for rule infractions. 

Greto opened the scoring with 
a 1 yard plunge on the tenth play 
of the game and from then on the 
issue was never in doubt. Sec- 
onds later Jack Fredricks pounced 

on Bower's fumble at the B. C. 44 
yard line, and the Monteromen 
were on the move again. Miller 
put the pigskin in scoring position 
with a 32 yard run, then made a 
leaping catch of Wilson's aerial 
for a touchdown. 

Wilson and Miller combined to 
set up another score early in the 
second period, O'Connell fell on 
Miller's fumble in the end zone for 
the tally. With one minute re- 
maining in the first half Greto 
countered from 5 yards out to caj 
a 53 yard drive. Wilson's placi;- 
ment made the score 27-0, Wil- 
son passed to Miller for the final 
T. D., the play covering 60 yards. 

The defensive unit, as in prev- 
ious games, played inspired ball, 
holding Bridgewater to 27 yards 
rushing and 26 passing. 

Howard On The Way 

Dryden Sets M-D Record 
As Shoremen Bow Sat. 

The Loyola CoUege cross-cou';- 
try team defeated the Maroon and 
Black here last Saturday by a 
closely contested score of 27 to 

However, individual honors went 
to Filmore Dryden who set a new 
course record while winning his 
second consecutive dual meet vic- 
tory of the season. The winner's 
time of 19 minutes, II seconds, 
erases the old M-D mark set here 
last year by Larry Brandenburg 
when he led Washington College 
to victory over Gallaudet. Dryden 
pulled away from all competition 
at the 2 mile mark of the 3.8 mile 
grind, and sprinted the last one 
yards of the race. 

Competitive Kick 

Running one of the finest races 
of the afternoon was Tom Benson 
who kicked past George Bonadiao 
of Loyola to gain second place 
honors for the home team. John 
Colburn and Joe Paszek were 
fourth and fifth for the Green and 
Gray while Paul Becker of Wash-

morning in fine spirits and em- 
barked on their journey to Asli- 
land, Virginia, where they tangle 
^vith Randolph-Macon's Yellow 
Jackets tomorrow afternoon. 

The scores of previous games 
played this year definitely estab- 
lished the locals as pre-game fav- 
orites. While they have rolled to 
consecutive victories over Lycom- 
ing, Swarthmore, and Bridgewat- 
er, the Macons have been set back 
in three out of four encounters. 
After dropping three in a row to 
Richmond, Apprentice School, and 
Florida State U., they bounded 
back last week to edge Catholic 
U. (Wash., D, C.), 26-21. 

The Yellow Jacket coaching 
staff has been stiiving to field a 
line-up that will prove equally ef- 
fective on offense as on defense. 
To quote head coach Paul Sev- 
erin: "We tried the two platoon 
system and it didn't seem to work 
for us. From now on, we ^vill 
field the best eleven on the club 
and keep them in there regardless 
of who has the ball." (From the 
'■Yellow Jacket" of Oct. 13, 1950). 
The loss of halfbacks Spike 
Gray and Johnny Tkach, who were 
injured two weeks ago when the 
lemon and black were thumped by 
Florida State, 40-7, was a serious 
blow. Gray, fii-st string right- 
half was out with a seperated 
shoulder but returned unexpected- 
ly to meet C. U.. Tkach, a stand- 
out on both offense and defense, 
may be out for the season with a 
torn knee cartilage. When these 
starters are absent, Brockwell 
(185 lbs.) and Shiflett (196 lbs.) 
team up at halves, Keller, an 18 
year old, will direct the squad 
from quarter and Begor, a new- 
comer, will do the line plunging. 
Veteran Line 
Six veterans will hold down the

i\Iusic. and the creation of a vital 
Department of Art. The Presi- 
dent said he did not consider mere 
'bigness" a goal hut that he would 
stress increased facilities and qual- 
ity of accomplishment in the work 
of this college of liberal arts, part 
of the value of which was in its 
small size and its ability to pro- 
duce leaders. 

Dr. Gibson pointed out that 
most of the aid received from the 
State of Maryland goes to indi- 
vidual students, since it is award- 
ed in the form of scholarships. 

Mr, Orville Wright introduced 
the speaker: ilr. Parks Rasin pre- 
sided. Mr. Carl Hoffmann out- 
lined the purpose of Rotary. Mr. 
Switzer led the group in singing 
and Miss Russell played the piano. 
The members of the Club and of

Soccerites Took Bucknell Friday, 
Star M.-D. Opponents On Tap 

W. C. Topples Backnell 
In Last 30 Seconds 

The traveling hooters proved 
that Friday the 13th wasn't un- 
lucky for the Sho'men at least 
when they handed mighty Buck- 
nell a 2-1 loss. 

It seemed as if Bucknell was 
going to have things their way, 
right from the start when the 
Pennsylvanians scored before five 
minutes had elapsed. This, their 
only goal, proved to be all the 
Sho'men needed to spark their de- 

The middle part of the second 
period found the Shoremen "press- 
ing" in order to tie their hosts. 
Walt Ortel initiated the score with 
an out-of-bounds kick that Doug 
Tilley banged into the net ^vith his 
head. The half ended 1-1. 
Defense Holds 

The third period failed to 
change the scoreboard record. At 
the outset of the fourth, it was 
evident that Bucknell was determ- 
ined to score. Time and again 
the Sho' defense stood its ground 
and repelled the attempted invas- 

Thirty Second Win 

The tie stood and thirty seconds 
remained when speedy George 
Horn (WC) slipped behind the de- 
fense and passed to a "center- 
field-net" trio. The first man. 
Hernandez, kicked a "beaut" for 
the score — the game — and a upset. 

Atheymen Face Ttoo 
Conference Foes 

The local hooters take to the 
"Hill" at Westminster tomorrow 
to defend their unmarked record 
against the Green Terrors' of 
Western Maryland. 

A follow up is slated with Loy- 
ola of Baltimore in Chestertown 

With the recent Bucknell vic- 
tory under their belts, the Athey- 
men feel confident as they take on 
their toughest M-D Conference 

The most important factor in 
the play of the legmen is the line- 
play. Sho'man Tilley seems to 
have found his mark and works 
nicely with the other potent line- 
men. Good halfbacking through- 
out the season has been featured, 
what with Hungevford being the 
most improved soccevite since last 
season. The inexperienced inner- 
defense is developing, while Butch 
"what's-your-name?" McHugh is 
beginning to look like a polished

Lieutenant Commander H, J .Brown, 
-Assistant Director of Training, 5ih 
Xaval District, Norfolk, Virginia, was 
a campus visitor this week. 

His visit was a result of the Edu-

here he inspected the fatilities of the 
college in regard lo the possibility 
of establishing a Navy Training Pro.

questionnaire had been sent to 
'ashington College from ihe Navy 
Department, regarding the college 
facilities and its ability lo carry such 
a program. 

During World IVar H boih the

We hear ihai the college orclicsira 
has disbanded. Why, Was it the lack 
of inicrtst? Was it because it was 
"too much work?" Just what was ihe 

We ihinK that the majority oF 
students will agree that a college 
orchestra would be nice for assem- 
blies, games, and other occasions. 
\Ve also think they know that no 
organization can be wished into 
cxbtencc. It takes work — hard work 
but it is the end result ihat counts. 

We know Ihat tnetc are enough 
tatenicd students on campus lo form 
an orchestra if only the desire to 
have an ordiesira could be stimu- 
lated. If it's a matter of "not having 
time", you talented students ask 
yourselves, '"Which had 1 rather do, 
have one more hour a week to 'relax' 
or be an integral part of a worth- 
while orchestra," 

We can have an orchestra i! we 
want one — it's up to us. 


We suppose you've noticed the 
change in the appearance of the 
paper. We feel that an explanation 
is in order. 

As you know, the ELM is pri- 
marily a siudent publication. The 
money for its publication comes 
principally from the subscription 
price paid by the students at the 
beginning of the year. 

This year there are approximately 
100 less students than there were last 
ye^. This means that the ELM is 
now being published with at least 
S2')0 less working capital than last 

In an attempt to absorb the loss 
of this S250^ the editors and business 
manager have decided to have the 
ELM printed at less expense than 
prei'iou^ily. The only other alterna- 
tive was to raise the subscription 
price. This is something that we 
wanted to avoid if at all possible. 
The change may be a little difficult 
at fust for the staff but we feel 
sure that in a short time we can 
have a better paper than ever.

Wc should like to attack the use 
nicknames for college tcaius. As 
case in point we wonder if you h; 
ever contemplated the slew of names 
by which our vai^sity performers are 
known. We are at different times 
the "Crimgrayers," "Hawks," "City- 
liners." "Mainliners." "Hawk-hillers," 
or, to strelch a point, 'The battered 
band of bestragglcd veterans." 

In basketball our athletes score 
"Twin-pointers," "Double Digits," 
"outside tosses." "Charity tosses." 
Our baseball players not only hit 
but thc> "lash to right," "drill to 
center," "bloop to left" or "can- 
nonade a shot over the inviting 
confines of the right field wall." 
Visiting teams come to Hawk Hill 
rcih with victories over Agnes Irwin, 
rtc, but no one ever stopped to con- 
ider that most of the visiting athlcics 
ire in all probability tired from irav- 
:ling all night. 

On many occasions our interest is 
limulated by the renewal of a per- 
sonal feud between two players whicb 
as started at Canip Blanding, Florida. 
Chances are that the two were oppon- 
ents in the Army and again in inter- 
collegiate competition, but the odds 
arc that neither player ever heard 
of the other. 

Our spring sports arc not Track 
meets or Tennb matches, they 
are "Cindermeets" or "Clay Court 
Contests." Our gallant j>erform- 
ers are not just trackmen but 
"Cindermen," "Thin Clads," "Ber- 
telsmen." Varsity tennis team 
players arc almost invariably 
called "Netmen." 

In conclusion we should like to 
write an apologia of the foregoing 
by saying that the sports pages of oui 
"Hawk" as well as those of our lead- 
ng local tabloids would be rather 
dull if the above expressions were 
lot put into play. Can't you just 
magine reading the following: 
On Wednesday, November 9,

wards to 900 |>eoplc.

My Hobby . . . 

(Ed, Note: The following was 
tniittcd as a theme in Mr. 
ubakcr's English 10! Class). 
v particular hobby does not come 
i' the hc.iding of unique nor, for 
that matter, does the classification ol 
peculiar quite fit the case. Let us say 
instead that this hobby of mine is-um- 
iifTcrtnt . - . Well to be more explicit 
my hobby is talking. 1 will talk about 
lothing, somelhing, or more prcfcr- 
ibly everything. Talking is an art, 
however, the way I do it, it's a crime. 
I was launched on this hobby ol 
inc at a very early age, seven to be 
act. I had talked myself out of my 
first childhood fight. The neighbor- 
hood in which I lived was presided 
by a lad of ten, who was quite 
large and strong for his age. Well, 
one fine day this chap decided to 
in my place physically. I was 
definitely scared green by this uncom- 
fortable prospect, so I suddenly started 
liking, lo this day I still don't know 
hat I said. I talked so fast and 
furiously that the lad got all con- 
fused and eventually I had convinced 
not to plaster me, but to go and 
clip a few of his friends who were 
ing him wrong ( I just didn't like 
some of his friends). Well, to make 
long story short, I finally persuaded 
this big character into supporting me 
' neighborhood boss, (dirty 
politics at such an early age, my, my). 
High school saw mc further per- 
fecting my hobby by the way of de- 
bating clubs, dramatic productions, 
speech organizations, ar»l any other 
means by which I could get my vocal 
cords overworked. 

I can recall to mind an incident 
which occurcd in my third year 
English class, Wc happened to be 
reading Julius Caesar at that time, 
that is, the teacher and I were read- 
ing it while the rest of the class was 
sleeping. The reading was to have 
taken two weeks, but I did it for ihcm 
in one period. 

My last year in high school saw 
the crowning moment in my hobby. I 
was selected to act as master < 
monies at an assembly program, all 1 
had to do was introduce the acts, and 
I aUo had to give a simple speech on 
keeping the locker room clean ( re- 
quested by the principle). Prior to my 
entrance on the stage I had a fight 
with the assembly director, and this 
fight left me roaring mad. The assemb- 
ly started at eleven and was supposed 
to end at twelve, at a quarter to twelve 
I was still talking. I was so mad when 
I went on stage I decided to tell the 
whole student body just what 1 
thought of the school and faculty es- 
pecially the assembly director. 

henever I am with a group and 
of those inevitable lulls in con- 
servation occurs, I can be counted on 
p the conversation going and 
eventually try to dominate it. My 
greatest asset in this hobby of mine is 
the fact thai I have never been afraid 
people and speaking. The many times 
I have been called upon to speak be- 
fore a group of people, I have yet to 
have used a prepared speech. I much 
rathjr speak extemporaneously as "I 
am never at a loss for words.

Eisenman Requests 

Return Of Cola Bottles 

Herbie Eisenman, who handles the 
servicing of the coke machines on 
campus, has asked for the coopera- 
tion of the student body in returning 
the empty bottles. He stated that an 
unusually large number of bottles are 
cither being broken or lost. 

In order to make it more conven- 
ient for students to return empty 
bottles, Eisenman stated that carriers 
have been placed near the machjne. 
Students may use these carriers to 
carry the cokes back to their doimi* 
torics. StudenU are asked to place 
empty bottles in the cases located 
in the dormitories for this purpese. 

effects people is the case of my room- 
mate Harold Garrett. When I first met 
Harold he was a civil person and he 
often used to say a few words of greet- 
ing and quite frequently he would com- 
ment on the meals. Now, after spend- 
ing more than a month in the same 
room with mc all he does is grunt 
when spoken to, and he has developed 
a noticeable twich around the comcn 
of his mouth.

Boys From Drexel Institute Invade Saturday 



Exruses aren't being made. The Sho'mcn are just tighten- 
ing their belts and working harder to get their overturned 
iandwagon back on the road to grid virtoi7s. 

A few sideline comments after the Ashland tussle question- 
ad the afTects of the hot Virginia sun, the refs, and even the 
tfTorts put forth by the Monteromen. This writer, however, 
must attribute the loss to three things of a difTcrent nature. 
The Yellow Jackets used their weight effectively as ihey hustled 
xn masse through the Sho' line. A good scouting report of the 
Sho' eleven must have been turned in and heeded by the 
Jackets as they refused, time and again, to slice out of position. 
All afternoon, the locals running attack was slowed or stopped 
&y "heads-up" ends and backcrups. Last, but not least, the 
Severin eleven knew how to profit from a "break". A sho' 
fumble and a blocked kick set the stage for the 13-0 loss. 

Veteran basketball candidates now practicing nighdy, arc

Shopmen Bow To R.-M., 
13-0 In First Defeat 

An insplicd band of Randulph- 
Mdcon gridders gave previously un- 
defeated and unscoicd on Washington 
College its first setback of the season 
last Saturday at Ashland, Va., beat- 
ing ihcSho'men 13-0. 

lt,andolph-Macon capitalized on two 
breaks, a fumble and a blocked kick, 
to score both touchdowns. 

1 be Yellow Jackets tallied midway 
in the opening period after George 
I'endergraft recovered Howard's fum- 
ble on the W. C. 9yard line. On 
third down, Fullback "Sweeney" Shif- 
leit bucked over tackle for the marker. 
George Bell converted and R.-M. led 
7 too. 

l..iie in the final quarter. Bob I'ul- 
Han blocked Wilson's fourth down 
punt and recovered the ball at the 
W. C. 6. Shiflett rammed over foi 

the tally, but Belt's placement 
wide— 13-0, R.M. 

Hope Lingers 

The Momcromcn threatened early 
in the second period. Joe Ingarra 
tCTcepted Taylor's pass and rambled 
45 yards to the jacket Ifi. In foui 
plays the Shopmen had a first down 
on the R.-M. 5. But the drive fiizled 
out, and the Macons took possession 
on the 17-yard stripe. The Maroon 
and Black never again threatened. 

Jack Nacrelli and Joe Ingarra gai 
their usual sterling perfurmances o 
defense but the Washington offense 
was impotent all day. The Chester- 
town juggernaut which had averaged 
395 yards, rushing and passing, in 
the three previous games, was held 
to 80 yards net gain by the hard- 
charging Yellow Jacket forward wall.

period. Wood fired at the goal as

Field gridiron at 2:30 P.M. 

Alter experiencing their initial set- 
back of the current campaign last 
week at Randolph-Macon, the Sho'- 
men have undergone a week of vigorous 
practice sessions in preparation for the 
invading Pennsylvanians. 

Coach Monltro is expected to field 
the same cirven, with one exception, 
that bowed to R-M last week. John 
Santulli will start at left end replacing 
George Plocharski, who received a 
head injury in last week's game. 

The Drexel eleven has been taking 
advantage of a two week layover, since 
ihey had no game scheduled for the 
past week end. Coach Eddie Allen has 
been putting his boys through light, 
spirited workouts in hopes of ironing 
out the offensive wrinkles. Special 
emphasis has been on "precision, 
timing, speed and particular assign- 

Drcxcl's victorious offensive eleven, 
which has rolled to consecutive wins 
over Ursinus, Gettysburg, and P.M.C., 
will feature Stewart at center. Price 
and Ream in the guard slots, Adams

Zakarian and Spahr. In the backficld, 
Brown will be under the center, Gcr-

victory home. 

W.C. Harriers 

The Washington College cross-coun- 
try team defeated Johns Hopkins here 
last week, 23 to 34. as Earl Grim ot 
the Blucjays set a new course record, 

The new record of 18 minutes, 37 
seconds supplants the recently csiab- 
lished one of 19 minutes, II seconds 
set by Philmore Dryden three weeks 
ago against Loyola College. Grim was 
not without competition however, as 
Dryden stuck close to him until the 
latter part of the race. This new 
record is an exceptionally good time 
and should stand well into the future. 

Tom Benson trailed Dryden across 
the finish line with Mike McCinnis 
of Hopkins close behind. George Eich- 
elbergcr was fourth for the Maroon 

id Black followed by Ellsworth Boyd 
and Jack MacCulluogh als of ^V. C. 
Eighth place went to Bud Howard ot 
Hopkins who sprinted the length of 
the football field only to be uutkicked 
by Boyd and MacCulluogh. Bob Smith 
of Hopkins was ninth, and Bill Lan- 
don of W. C. tenth. Harold Garrett 
of the home team beat John Peder- 
son of Hopkins to complete the race.

Hallowe'en's Ancestry- 
Traced Back To Pumpkins 

Bring on those gorgeous gourds — 
the big orange and yellow pumpkins. 
Jack-o'-lanter season is just ahead. 

W'hv is ihc sculptured pumpkin so 
well intrenched as the No. I symbol 
of Hallowe'en as celebrated in Amcri 
ca? In the answer to that question 
lies Ihc story of the mixed ancestry o) 
Hallowe'en itself. 

The jac-o'-lantcrn. to be sure, holds 
no direct connection to the church 
celebration thai gave Hallowe'en its 
natnc. A dozen leniuries ago Christen^ 
doin in Europe esiablished All .Saints 
Day followed by All Souls" Day, The 
night in ad%ance of this iwoday festi- 
vals of worship was declared a hal 
lowed, or holy_ eve in honor of the 

Tnidiiion.s Wouldn't Emsc 

The (huicb fathers evidently hoped, 
among other things, to sunplant in 
some degree the paganism of autumn 
festivals, then already ancient, with 
enliiihiencd cu.stoms of a Christian 
observance. Out of it came ihc name 
of our popular bill unofTicial Octohei 
31 h'.liday — Halloween. Hut if thev 
reallv ihoueht ir> erase entirely the 
pagan tradition of an annual autumn 
vigil against spooks and evil spirits, 
ihev failed. 

That tradition had deep roots in 
practices of Greeks, Romans, Egypt 
ians, Druids, and Celts. The Romans 
at harvest time, for example, had long 
honored Pomona, their godties.s ol 
fruits and seeds. Bonfires marked theii 
celebrations. Nuts and apples wcrt 
the tokens of their winter food store. 

The Druids of ancient Britain held 
a three-day festival to mark what was 
10 them hioih the year's and the sum 
mer's end. To them, most of all. can 
be attriltuied HalKiw'en's superstitions 
and beliefs. From them come customs 
of Hallowe'en decorations, bonfires to 
scare off the ghosts ihai hover in the 
■ihadows, and images of goblins lo 
add to the night's eeriencss. To tht 
Druids, a black cat was the perfeci 
hahitai for a dcparied human soul. 

Thus the pumpkin jack -o -Ian lent 

fits a mixed Hallowe'en tradition, not 
ily because it makes a weird and 
shadow-casting spcKik, but because il 
part of the harvesi. Out of it has 
come the filling for the pic, crowning 
proof that the harvest horn holds 

Pumpkin "Irrelevant" Oveiseas" 

Pumpkins and squashes are ol 

Weslcin Hemisphere origin. tin 

known in Europe prior to 1570 as fai 

records shoiv. Since pre-Columbian 

limes. Indians of Middle and Souih 

America have planted ihem in their 

fields of corn, and ranked them high 

a food source. 

Hallowe'en is no longer the cele- 
brated festival it once was in Europe 
and the British Isles. Pumpkins, a 
noiclty in Europe in .American colo- 
lal days, never have become pari of 
the Old World's Hallowe'en celebra- 
tions, and are termed "irrelevant" lo 
he celebraiion of ihc auiuinn fesli-

'Double Door'' To Open 
Washington Players Season 

The W.ishington Players will open 
their thirty-second season next Thurs- 
day and Friday evenings in William 
Smith Auditorium with the presenta- 
tion of Elizabeth McFadden's mystery 
thriller, "Double Door". The play is 
iponaored by the Kent County Chapter 
of the Children's Aid Society. 

Reserved scats arc being sold this 
year for the first time and will be 
on sale at the door for $1.00. General 
admission tickets, also on sale at the 
door will sell for 75 cents. Curtain 
time is 8:30, 

The play, sit in the 1910 era, 
complete with a Victorian stage set- 
ting, is directed by June Williams 
and Helen Roe. Both girls have been 
active with the Players for several 
years, both on and off stntfc. 

Casting for "Double Door" sets a 
precedent this year with an almost 
completely new line-up of players. 
The lead parts have been put in the 
hands of freshmen which is also some- 
thing new for the Players. 

The Victorian set is created by Bob 
Wadell and Bob Elder, the former 
being chairman of the stage crew. 
Also to add to the general effects 
of an entiirly difTercnt play are the 
new lights, rented from the Chester 
Players, which improve the lighting 
facilities of the Players 100 percent. 
Jim Jones, electrician for the college 
group, has asscntbled the lights and 
put them into working order for the 

"Double Door", quoted by the New 
York Sun to be "A melodrama war- 
ranted lo excointe the nerves and 
send aitreeable shivers up the spine" 
is an innovation for the Players this 
year. Mrs. E. Winifred Opgrandc. 
advisor to the group slated: "In their 
long rangr planning The Washington 
Players endeavor to present a well- 
balanced fare of types of drama. 
'Double Door', the first offering of 
the year, is a suspense-building melo- 
drama which challenges the best of 
acting talent."

Dr. Gibson 



The Washington College Religious 
Fellowship met on Tuesday night ii 
Hodson Hall. The main event of thi 
evening was a speech by Di. Gibson, 
who talked on the urgent necessity of 
our civilizations having more thorough 
knowledge of human nature and how 
to deal with our fellow men amicably. 

He rctciTcd to the pessimism which 
has been particularly acute sii 
dcvclopmcni of the -Aiom Bomb and 
(he unsettled state of the world 
that date in 1945 when the Bom 
dropped on Hiroshima. While seeing 
no reason for extreme pessism he did 
feel that ihcre waf reason to 
skeptical about the possibility 
reaching any enduring solution 
through the efforts of diplomats and 
peace conferences. The record 
tory. he said, does not justify 
optimism as to the enduring qualities 
of treaties arrived at through dipli 
malic negotiations. 

He discussed the enormous advanct 
of science and said that even the 
scieniists themselves were now 
lurbed at the destructive potentialities 
of the tool they have developed. He 
pointed out thai our knowledge ol 
how to deal with human beings of all 
races and nations has not kept pace 
wit hour knowledge of the physii 
facts of the universe. He quoted seve- 
ral eminent scientists that whjit the 
world needs is not more of the pro- 
ducts of physical science but more 
exhaustive nndetslanding of human 
nature as gained not only through a 
scicniific study of men but also 
through study of the living records of 
men foimd in literature and the other 
humanities. .\ discu.'uion of the points 
of the speech followed. 

The Fellowship is planning 
Christmas Party and Carol Sing, the 
date of which will be announced later. 

Freshmen Elections To Be 

Held Next Friday 

Freshmen elections, under the di- 
rections of ODK. will be held Friday 
November 17. in Bill Smith Hall from 
1:30 P.M. - 5 P.M. 

Petitions bearing the names of Ij 
persons endorsing a candidate must be 
1 the Dean of Men's office (Dr. Chas. 
;. Clark) by 5 P.M. Wednesday. Nov, 
3. Only those candidates who arc 
backed by petitions will be able to 
be elected to the offices which include 
those of President. Vice-President. 
Secretai-\'. and Treasurer, 


Fire engines, torches, pa jama 
clad freshmen and a gigantic bon- 
fire should induce one and all lo 
tun» oul and cheer the hard work- 
ing IVIonieronien to %-ictory to- 

c flying into 
the game on the brunt of last week's 
convincing 33-0 win over Galludet in 
the nation's rapltol. The Sho'men, 
still plagued with injuries to key play- 
ers, Howard and Desmond, were also 
bolstered morally by their victory over 
Hampdcn-Sydney. Coach Montero has 
placed emphasis this week on tackling, 
a factor that was notably off-shade 
in last week's encounter. 

Previous Records To Date 

Catholic U. brings with them a 
not too impressive record of two wins, 
two defeats, and a lies. The Capitol- 
Lads have triumphed over Bridge- 
water, 32-0; and Galludet, 33-0; have 
succumed to Randolph-Macon, 26-21; 
and Mount St. Mary, 40-7 ; and have 
tied once mighty Hopkins, 13-13. 

The Local-LaLds have rolled up 
32-0 victories over Lycoming (Pa.) 
and Bridgcwater, spanked Swarthmore, 
34-0; and ccked out a ihrillcr over 
Hampdcn-Sydncy, 32-27. Their only 
set backs came at the hands of Ran- 
dolph-Macon, who took advantsce of 
a fumble and a blocked kick to win 
13-0, and Drcxel Tech, 21-0. 
Boast Individual Stars 

Despite their records the teams 
appear to be well matched and each 
boasts several individual stan. Tony 
Pelcrossi, Cardinal right end, has been 
a standout all year, grabbing aerials 
and setting up scons. Bill Ennis, who 
has scored 54 points this season, and 
who incidentally scored both C. U. 
touchdowns against W. C. in last 
year's 14-14 tic, leads a light, speedy ■ 
backficld which averages about 170" 

The locals also boast several stand- 
out that deserve mention. Bonnett, 
Nacrelli, Ingarra, and Cannone have 
been in the opponents backficld con- 
stantly all year. Gaitc Miller, a nrw- 
romer to the campus, has created 
quite a stir with his touchdown sprints. 
He crossed the goal line three times 
last week to bring his total T.D, out- 
put to ten. The needle-point passing 
of little John Wilson has drawn con- 
tinual praise from rival coaches. It 
was his pass to Millncr that gained 
the 32-27 victory over H-S last week 
in ibc waning seconds. A possible 
change in the Washington lin-'-up 
may find Magliochctti in at rii;ht half

Two Adolescents, Alberto Moiavia, 
Farrar, Straus, 1950, trans., by Bcrlc ilc 
Zocte and .\ngus Davidson. 

Adolescents is a sociopsyeholo- 
gical study of the awakening of sexual 
awareness, with all its turbulent rami- 
fications, in two boys, Agostino and 
Luca, made palatable by having been 
put together with considerable deli- 
cacy, feeling, and literary skill. There 
any complimentary things to be 
said of ihc book: the characters arc 
certainly drawn; ihe psychological in- 
sight (because it is that of an artist) 
is undcrsi:tndlng, 
svni|>h:ilbclic, and 

diltjLuli and eliiv 
iic subject most 
compcicntly and 
gracefully made 
c o ni p rchensivc; 
Ihe few moments 
of drama subtly 
and artistically 
contrived without 
the usual bathes and nonsense. The 
first siory, that of Agostino, is par- 
ticularly good. In it Moravia traces 
that agonising stage in .■\gonstine's bfe 
vhcn he first begins to see his mother 
IS a woman and not as his own per- 
onal goddess — a very important 
point in any boy's life. The other 
story is essentially of Luca's first 
sexual experience and of the soul- 
searching torments of a boy about to 
become a man. They are both beauti- 
fully done, and, in short, if slubbering 
around through 268 pages of the dank, 
doleful, and desparing depths of 
puerile emotion does not make you a 
little sick, as it did me. Two Adoles- 
cents is a fine and moving book, one 
which should be of great interest and 
one which will surely enlighten. 

So far as I know, no one (not even 
on the dust jacket) has gone so far as 
to call this book a novel, and that 
b good. I think, because the novel is 
form and art has no business 
basing a complete work on such 
flimsy stuff as the love life of fifteen- 
year-olds, however well it is done. 
Literature is full of studies of the 
adolescent (e.g. Proust's Remembrance 
of Things Past) but in great literature 
:hese studies arc properly woven into 
a broad tapestry whose main concern 
is the death of kings. Sociology is the 
offspring of anthropology and that 
iscuous and dissolute wench, the 
Industrial Revolution, and an errant 
daughter it is nowdays, too. Offhand, 
do not know of a single good result, 
piriiual or aesthetic, ot the Industrial 
Revolution. The two great studies it 
has most affected arc anthropology and 
psychology, and, in exploiting these, 
has affected art. Masterpieces of 
literature have been produced, it is 
true, in and of this atmosphere — 
but their liicraes are, almost universal. 
ly, the breakdown of society and the 
uus consequences of, as a sign 
ouuide Jersey City proudly announces. 
All for Industry". It seems to me, and 
I freely admit the narrowness, not only 
of my knowledge, but on my thought, 
that sociology and psychology have 
gone a-whoring after [he wretched, 
degraded, and thoroughly undone spe- 
cimen we call Modern Man. AJl of 
which is not necessarily a criticism of 
Two Adolescents, but of the tendency 
of contemporary art and thought, 
which loo often isolates and builds 
monuments to what arc, finally, very 
unimportant things. 

Seminar Explored

New York was philosophically 
plored last week by members of the 
philosophy seminar under the guid- 
ance of Dr. John Smith. 

The group viewed the Riverside 
Church. St. Patrick's Cathedral and 
the Church of Si. John the Divine 
and together discussed the philosophi- 
cal aspects of these buildings. Later, 
as relaxation, .some went to the Broad-

Kentucky. He graduated from East 
New Market (Md.) High School in 
1938 and from there he went to 
Salisbury State Teacher's College for 
years. 1 he Glen L. Martin Co.

Gettysburg Invaded 
By History Class 

dcr to get a perspective that 
a text book could never provide, the 
American history class took a field 
trip Monday to see for themselves just 
what went on at the famous battle of 
Gettysburg. The group was accompan- 
ied by Dr. Charles B. Clark, instructor 
of the course. 

The main purpose of the trip was to 
see the battlefield where the "turning 
point" of the Civil War took plate 
and lo view the cyclorama of Ceitys 
burg — a huge oil painting done by 
a Frenchman, Fhilipotcaux, showing 
the battlefield scenes and their loca' 

Also of great interest was the elect 
ric map showing how the battle wa- 
fought and explaining maneuver rela 
tions and the highlights of Gettysburg. 
This particular map has been voted by 
military men, historians and educators 
to be the outstanding mu&eum exhibit 
in the United States. 

The battlefield itself, now under 
the Federal Park Service, consists of 
16,000 acres, 52 miles of driveway and 
2.000 monuments to heroes of the wa; 
The battle of Gettysburg was fought 
the first three days of July in 18G3 
and from this point on, the South 
continually fell back. 150,000 men 
took part in the battle and out of 
these came .50,000 casualties. In fifty 
minutes of attack on the Gettysburg 
field there were more men lost in 
casualties than in the first five days 
of Ihe battle of Normandy in World 
War II.

H'S Jackets Shed In Last 30 Seconds 



You'll feel it in the air — the old college spirit, that is. Home 
comings the country over always lend an extra punch to the play of 
the home team, and you'll see it as well as feel it here on the "Hill' 
tomorrow afternoon. 

The Monteromen will be making their last bid for the Mason 
Dixon Football Championship that will be decided definitely next 

^.^ week. Dickerson scoring system, used to determine 

the standings of the M-D clubs, finds Randolph- 
Macon (Va.) and Western Maryland top con- 
tenders for the crown. If these two squads can win 
their remaining league games, they will become 
co-champs and retire for another year. However, 
should one or both fail, Washington College could 
share the winner's circle by defeating Catholic 

Two rounds of this three-way fight for the 
championship will be fought tomorrow. C. U. visits the Sho'men 
while the Maconmen travel to Hampdcn-Sydney. This southern 
tussel, like the local fracas, should be a honey. A Western Maryland 
vs. Johns Hopkins game rounds out the conference on the 18th. 
Now and Then 

Tlie Hampdcn-Sydney game of last week, that the locals should 
have won by three TDs instead of five points, brought to mind 
another game of the previous season. It was a Shore homecoming, 
and the Randolph Macon squad was stuck with the short end of a 
20-0 score. Like Saturday's eye-opener, thirty seconds remained in 
the game. Little John Wilson who had starred all afternoon faded, 
from the fifty yard line looking for a receiver who was not to be 
found . . . Sizing up the predicament John took off, pigskin in hand, 
and raced half the field for the score. The "Triple-threater" is still 
"hot" and unpredictable (see H-S vs. W.C. story) but the '49 good 
measure punch has become a six point necessity it seems. 

Eight for nine sounds fine as far as medals are concerned. And 
that's the number of honors the thin-clads brought back to the 
"Hill" from the Baltimore Olympic Club's championship meet last 
Saturday. The four medal holders from W.C. were headed by the 
winner of the meet, Fillmore Dryden (Captain-elect and coach). 
Ellsworth Boyd, participant and Elm sports reporter, details the 
harrier's trip elsewhere on the page. 

On The Wrong "Footsie" 
Apologies to Paul "Footsie" Desmond who, like yours truly, was 
surprised to find a picture of Jack Nacrclli over his name in the 
Elm last week. Likewise, quarter-back Nacrelli is asked to forgive 
both the editor and the sleepy-eyed make-up man whom we shall 
leave in the "sack" this week.

Dryden Sets 
Record For 
Four Miles 

One hunilrcd and iwcnLy pounds o[ 
muscle and endurance, Filinore Dry 
den, captain of the Shore cross-couniry 
squad broke another record last Satur- 
day at the Del-Mar Cross-Country 
Championship in Baltimore. 

Although the team took second 
place, behind the well rounded Balti- 
more Olympic Club, Dryden clinched 
an individual conquest by trouncing 
Frank Pflaging of the B.O.C. in the 
remarkable time of 20 minutes, 41 

Cut 12 Seconds 

This betters the old mark of 20.53 
by twelve seconds and unquestionably 
leaves future thinclads a difliculi 
record to challenge. Dryden's othci 
record which was set on the W.C, 
course was recently broken by Hop- 
kins, hence the "Human Machine" 
was determined to establish anothi 
one before he graduates this February. 
Becker Outstanding 
xth place in this four mile jour- 
ney went to Paul Becker whose per- 
petual pace brought him from be- 
hind to pass five men at the finish. 
Third, fourth and fifth harriers for 
the Maroon and Black were Tom 
Benson, Ellsworth Boyd and Jack Mac- 
CoUuogh who were responsible for 
edging out King's College, Salisbury 
State Teacher's College, and Mt. St. 

ary's in the scoring column.

John Wilson's forty yard touchdown 
heave to Wayne Millner in the closing 
seconds of the game gave Washington 
College a 32-27 upset victory over the 
highly regarded Hampden-Sydney 
Tigers on Kibler Field last Saturday. 
Xlie game was a spine-tingling affair 
which saw H-S come from behind 
vylh two touchdowns to take the lead 
in the last few minutes of the final 
(luaricr only to have victory snatched 
from (heir grasp. 

Miller Scores Early 
It looked as if the Sho'men were 
going to make a runaway of it in the 
opening minutes of the tilt. Halfback 
Gaite Millner, who scored three T.D.'s_ 
took a pitchout from Wilson on the 
third play from scrimmage and sped 
59 yards down the sidelines for a 
touchdown. Wilson's place-kick was 

After an e.tchange of punis. Tiger 
end Ed Dameron recovered a Millner 
fumble at the W.C, 29 yard marker. 
The Virginians failed to capitalize on 
this break, however, and W.C, took 
over on the 19. The Sho'men advanced 
idlicld in seven plays, but Glad- 
, a steller defender for the Tigers, 
grabbed another fumble by Millner 
and gnlloped 49 yards to tie the hall 
game. Bob Blair missed the extra 

Midway through the second stanza, 
Wilson hit Millner with a -14 yard 
aerial for Washington's second score, 
Wilson converted and the Sho'men left 
the field for halftime with a 13-6 lead. 
Milbier Tallies Again In Third 
Hampden . Sydney dominated the 
play in the third period but couldn't 
get a scoring move under way. Follow- 
ing an exchange of punts the Sho-men 
took over on their own 25. On second 
down, Millner scooted around left end. 
and behind perfect blocking, raced 64 
yards to paydirt. The Tigers bounced 
back with a 64 yard march. Bob 
Leonard crashing over tackle for a 
T.D. Bob Blair converted. 

Johnny Wilson's passing sparked a 
64 yard scoring maneuver that initi- 
aled the fourth quarter. Tosses to 
Plocharski and Millner put the ball 
on the W-S eleven and Wilson went 
the remaining distance on a "bootleg" 
play. Wilson abo added the extra 
point and Washington led 26-13. 
Tigers Strike Back 
The Virginians took the kickoff and 
roared right back with a 57 yard sortie. 
II Gruver culminated the move with 
a two yard plunge and Blair kicked 
he placement. A few moments later. 
Hair passed to Gruver for 56 yards, 
his put the ball on the W.C. nii 
■ard stripe. In three plays H-S had 
touchdown, Leonaid bucked over from 
Ihc five. When Blair added (he ex 
point the Tigers led 27-26 with little 
more ihau a minute to play. 

the Monteromen were not to be 
denied the vicioiy. \Vilson returned 
the kickolf to W.C.'s 24. "Slingin" 
John then tossed to Miller for 17 and 
a hist down at the 41. Three passes 
went incomplete before Wilson hit 
Miller again with an 18 yarder to set 
the stage for the payoff switch to 
Wayne Millner.

It was the fourth win in 
for the Maroon and Black, while for 
Hampdcn-Sydney it was the fourth 
loss. The Tigers have won three. 

Miller and Wilson were the offen- 
sive standouts for the Shoremen. 
Miller tallied three times and gained 
153 yards in ten carries. He now has 
ten touchdowns and has averaged 8.5 
yards per carry in the six games. 
Wilson completed 8 of 16 passes for 
196 yards. He passed for two T.D's, 
scored one himself, and added two 
extra points.

Glee Club 
Introduces Song 

The Glee Club introduced a new 
Washington College song to the stud- 
ents at assembly yesterday. 

Words and music were written by 
Mrs. Winifred Opgrandc, and is the 
first entry in the competition for an 
ofiieial college song. Despite its 168 
year history, the college has no official 
song well known to the students or 
alumni. It is understood that other 
songs arc being written and will be 
presented at a later date. 

The following is a copy of the 
words of the song written by Mn. 

Out Alma Mater we'll always cherish, 
We pledge to thee our fondest dream; 
Maroon and Black will never perish 
While honor, truth, and service gleam; 
Beneath thy banner will always gather 
Your loyal sons and daughters true; 
Thy hallowed halls of fame and valor 
\i'ill guard us all the long years

Student - Faculty 

Committee Weighs 

Ihc Si udcm -Faculty Commitlcc on 
Disripline mei on November 2 and 
considered ihc foltowing cases: 

(1) A male scudc'nt was teporicd for 
being in a girls donnitoiy after hours. 
He >vas given iivo weeks suspension. A 
spokesman for ihc Coinmiltee slated 
thai this light penalty for so serious 
an ofTcnse was given only because the 
Cominitiee was convinced that the 
crond was more indiscreet than dis- 
honorable. Had there been anv moral 
implicalions, the penalty would have 
been expulsion^ he added. 

(2) A siudeni was reported for 
aradeniii dishonest v. The Committee 
decided that he should recei\e an 
'¥' in the course and be put on dis- 
ciplinary probation. Again the penally 
was slighter than the offense desened, 
the spokesman said. In handling this 
hrst case in this manner, the Com- 
mittee series fair warning that future 
rajes invoKing aradeniii dishonesty 
will be dealt with more sevcrly. he 

The new Commiticc was established 
ill October by President Gibson. Its 
members include Dr, Joseph McLain, 
chairman; Coach Ed Athcy; Professor 
Jonitis; Dean of Men, Dr. Charles B. 
Clark, and Dean of Women. Miss 
Amanda T. Bradley. a.s well as two 
student representatives. They arc 
Eddie Leonard, president of ODR, and 
Elinor Cusiafson, representative of the 
Junior class selected by ODK. 

According to Dr. Gibson, more stu- 
dents will evcniunlly be added to the 

New Civil Service

College Graduates 

Evening Adult Education 
To Set New W. C. Precedent 

Washington College will set a new 
precedent this year by endeavoring to 
establish an evening program of adult 
education on the college campus. The 
classes, which arc to be non-accred- 
ited, will begin somciimc in Novem- 
ber and run for a period of ten weeks. 

Dr. Daniel Z. Gibson, President of 
Washington College, stated that tlic 
teaching program will dilTcr from 
that of the formal undergraduate 
classes, which arc accredited. All 
classes arc to be run on a seminar 
basis with no examinations bcin^ given. 
The teaching augmented by special 
assistant lecturers from outside. 

The charge for these courses will 
be very nominal, Dr. Gibson explained. 
Each ten week course will cost ap- 
pro.\!inaiely five dollars in order lo 

compensate the instructors. 

.Ml courses arc intentionally planned 
for the non-specialty adult who de- 
sires only to learn more about a field 
of vocational or current interest. The 
only requirement for the establish- 
ment of a class is that there be at 
least ten persons interested in tak- 
ing it. 

Among the courses which will be 
taught arc: present day economic 
theory; history of the Far East, of 
Europe, of Maryland, of Latin Amer- 
ica; appreciation o( art; background 
of modern science; modern educa- 
tional theory and practice ; English 
and American literature, both earlier 
and contemporary; prartical cxposi- 
tional writing; and study of German, 
French, and Spanish. 



Ticket sales for the 1 hanksgiving 
Cotillion, sponsored by Omicion Delta 
Kappa, arc moving slowly, it was an- 
nounced today by Ed Leonard, ODK 

esident. An accompanying release 
announced the procurement of Paul 
Fredericks and his band, currently 
playing at ""Clementcs" in Penns 
jrove. New Jersey. 

Ticket sales under the cotillion plan 
viU continue until November 20th. 
he day before the opening dance. \l 
sufficient funds are not procured (or 
covering the ODK affair, the cotillion 
sales will open after Thanksgiving 
with semester tickets at half-price and 
full-year at a one-quarter reduction. 

Sales will be handled next week 
from (he Snack Bar with the cotillion 
organizations in charge. Prices are 
S-i.">0 for a semester ticket for two 
dances. S6.00 for the full ^ear and 
four affairs, with single dance tickets

Slate and national teachers' associa. 
s which aim at interesting capable 
young men and young women in edu- 

tion as a career. 

The Towson Convention, numbering 
approximately 300 delegates from all 
over the state, ratified the F.TA. 
State Constitution, which united the 
local chapters and clubs under one

to college graduates and others with 
social science backgrounds as a result 
of recent amendments to the Social 
Security Act which extended coverage 
of the Act to about 11,000,000 per- 
sons, the Civil Service Commission 
said today. 

The job title* arc "field assistant' 
and "claims assistant". The jobs will 
be located throughout the country 
with a beginning salary of $3,100 pei 

According to the Commission, appli- 
cants for these positions in the Fed-

the nationvride examination announced 
on October 17 for Junior Manage- 
ment Assistant, which includes another 
type of social science assistant job.

Players Open Year With 'Double Door' 

Thanksgiving Dance First 
Of Cotillion Series Here 

To siart ilic siiuknis of Wasliiiig[i 
Cdllegc ofT on a good vacation, ODK 
has planned the scmi-forinal Thank: 
giving Dance, to l>e held Tuesday 
evening at 8:00. November 21, in Ca; 
Gymnasium. The dance is the first 
of the year in be held under the 
Cotillion Plan. Others are: The Christ- 
mas Dance, the Mid-Year Prom, and 
the June Ball. 

Cotillion dances, sponsored by ODK 
were introduced to the campus Ihi? 
year. Thus far. the plan has not met 
with too mucli student approval, but 
it is hoped by ODK that the Thanks- 
giving Dant;c will enable the program 
to be carried on. 

Cotillion tickets will be sold through 
Monday. Noveinber 20. If by then the 
needed 100 sales have not been i 
the ticket price for ihe ODK will be 
$2.00. However, if the needed amount 
on tickets can be sold, tickets boughi 
at the door will be $3.00. according 
to the Cotillion plan. 

To familiarize students with the 
Cotillion plan again, it works as 
follows: Four dances per year are 
given under the plan. Holders of the 
Cotillion tickets which cost 58.00 per 
year or $4J0 per semester will be ad- 
mitted to the dante on showing the 
tickets. Prices for tickets sold at the 
door for each of the dances will be 
S3.00. Students who attend all four 
dances that have boughi Cotillion 
tickets save S-1-00 per year. 

As a money-saving plan for W.C. 
students, the Cotillion plan should 
prove popular. However, the main 
problem appears to be scrapping up 
the initial $8.00. A member of ODK 
Staled: ""Ii's up to the students . 
They can make or break the four big 
dances of the year by their reaction 
to the Cotillion Plan." 

Sadie Hawkins 
Dance Saturday 

A largf turnout is expected for the 
traditional Sadie Hawkins dance to 
be held Saturday night in Hodson 
Hall, 8:00 to 12:00 P.M. The popu- 
lar dance is fponsored annually by 
the Senior Class. 

An unusual feature of the dance 
is that ihL- girls invite the boys, es- 
cort them to and from the dance, 
and pay all expenses. Stags, both boy:i 
and girls, will be admitted, however. 
Admission is 75 cents per couple, 50 
cen;s stag.

Story Behind 
The Story 

It had been hoped that The Salis- 
iiry Stale Champion VFVV Drum 
and Bugle Corps would be able to 
take part in the Pep Rally and Home 
coming Game ceremonies this past 
week end. That it could not was 
announced by Ed "Parsons, director ol 
band who stated, "We greatly 
appreciate the offer to participate in 
the Washington College Homecoming 
cclcbraiion. Unfortunately the mem- 
l)ers ill the band were refused their 
individual recjuests to be given time 
off from their various jobs in and 
around Salisbury. We hope, however, 
to take part in some future activity 
at the college." 

The possibility that the group could 
be secured was suggested by Sand 
Jones, Senior Class President and ; 
pergonal friend of Mr. Parsons. Jones 
spoke to Lee Cook. President of the 
Varsity Club which sponsored Hoi 
coming, and with his backing tele- 
phoned Mr. Parsons in Salisbnr)'. The 
matter was brought before the m 
hers of the band who later requested 
permission from their employers to at- 
tend the affair, hut due to the heavy 
vohime of business on Saturday, per- 
ission was not granted. 
In the meantime. Cook and Jones 
:;iit to Dr. Gibson, President of Wash- 
ington College, and informed him of 
their action. Dr. Gibson extended his 
complete cooperation, and arranged 
for the VFVV group to eat at Hodson 
Hall, and for Cain Hall to be 
converted to a temporary dormitory 
to house them. 

When informed that the band 
would be unable to attend, Dr. Gibson 
commented that it had been a good 
idea, and congrutulatc-d Ihe two stu- 
dents on their initiative, and expressed 
his disappointment at the outcome.

The Washington Players opened 
their season last nipht with an intense 
and fascinating production of "Double 
Door", a melodrama by Elizabeth 

Directed by June Williams, "Double 
Door" is presented with a seriousness 
which leaves some comic possibilities 
in the background, but which arouses 
the audience's concern, stimulates 
their feelings, and gives them more 
than a few thrilling moments. To use 
a trite but true word, the play is 

"Double Door" concerns the attempt 
of Victoria Van Bret, an aging spin- 
ster, to break up the marriage of her 
brother, Rip, with a woman whom 
Victoria considers beneath her class. 
The situation as it is written is some- 
what incredible, but across the foot- 
lights such things aren't noticed. Wo 
are satisfied to accept it as a picture 
where horror is intensified by the 
plight of young lovers harassed by a 
fascinating villainess. 

Pat Fennel dominates the stage 
with her characterization of Victoria 
Van Bret. She is a dry, humorless, 
domineering, joy-killing, intriguing 
devil with hypnotic eyes and grasping 
hands. She perhaps sacrifices variety 
and sublcty to gain power, but her 
tal break- 

down in the final scene is unusually 
convincing, giving a wonderful finisll 
to her performance and to the play. 
As Caroline Van Bret, Victoria's 
sister. Marge Glose makes a minor 
role one of major importance. Her 
acting is fine. She develops the pathos 
of Caroline's position with an excep- 
tionally good portrayal of childish 

Pat Bowes and Fred La Wall play 
th'-- young lovers, Anne and Rip. They 
command an adequate share of the 
audience's sympathy as they gradu- 
ally come to understand themselves 
and the mess they arc in. Anne's big 
speech in the final scene of act two, 
as Pat Bowes delivered it, was cer- 
tainly one of the high points of the 
play, I found myself wondering why 
Rip did not inherit some of the Van 
Bret passion (of which Victoria had 
so much) until the same final scene 
of act two when he rose to the oc- 

As the sympathetic Doctor Sully, 
Jim Eiring turned in a good perform- 
•ince. The dialogue in his scenes with 
Anne moved rapidly, a pleasant con- 
to the slower pace of the rest 
of the play. 

Speci.ii mention should be made 
of Bob Brink. Mendel Heilig, and 
wcl Sensabaueh all of whom 
hiivcd good characterizations with 
few lines. 

Bob Waddi'll, as stage manager, 
ind Jim .[ones, as electrician, provided 
n setting whirh efTectively underscored 
the mood of the play, fr.d-'ed, the 
Players are to be congratulated for 
• he attention they have given to a 
host of technicr-J details. Even the in- 
tf-rmisst'on music must have been 
chosen wi'h e.vpert care. 

1 h-ard bv th-- grape vine that 
"Double Door" is the plavers' first 
nttrmot at melodrnma, Thfy have 
done this one well and should feel 
'ncouracd to do more in the years 
'o come. After so much has been done 
so well, it is a sorrv thing to realize 
there will be onlv two performances.

leaders to see that the followers are 
given proper guidance. 

We believe that it is. 



n fi October 1 wrote a column 

about the Ml. Vernon Literary Society 

which I indirectly e.spressed the 


that the activities ol th.i 

organization bore little relation to 
things literary. I still hold that opin- 
ion and the Society itself has con- 
vinced many other people, who arc 
much less concerned with literature 
than 1 am. that there was some basis 
for the things I said a month ago. I 
would suggest {with credit to the 
gentleman who created Barnaby) that 
The Ml. Vernon Literary Society 
change its name to The Little Men's

worm, and I would welcome a score- 
board as much as any football-player. 
and I think it a hne thing that n 
campus organization can provide one, 
but the point is, that the Mt. Vernon 
Society should come out from behind 
iLs false five-foot shelf and stop pre- 
tending to be literary. Pus.iy looting 
is not good for the soul — it breeds 
all sorts of nasty things; complexes 
and the like. In the knowledge of 
the secretai7 of the Society, it has 
never given a book to the library, at 
least such a radical thing has not 
happened in the last two years. No one 
would object to a society meeting 
every two weeks for a general bull- 
session. It does not have to play at 
being cultural. Come. Vince. let us 
call a spade a spade.

Larry Wescott 
One of the most outstanding senior 
en is Lawrence Wescott, preferably 
known as Larry but called "Wes" or 
The Pope" more often than not. 
Larry came to the Hill in 1947 after 
graduating from Catonsvillc High, 
since he has entered W.C. he has l>cen 
ctive in many organizations and was 
ppointed to "Who's Who in Ameri- 
nn Colleges and Universities" this 
fall. "The Pope" is a member of 
the Newman Club and was president 
last year, hence the clerical nickname. 
is vice-president of Lambda Chi, 
Editor-in-Chief of the Pegasus, and a 
member of OJ).K.. Varsity Club, the 
President's Club, a past president of 
the College Choir, and a member of 
hree yeai^ standing of the lacrosse 

During the summer Larry works for 

le Hclfrish Lumber Company

a real vacation and went to the "1

From The President 

I am sure that the great majority 
of us are extremely proud of Wash- 
igton College — proud of its tradi- 
tions, iti scholarly rank, its program 
ImlU currioilar and extracurricular, 
and of at least those buildings on our 
cainpiu io which we can take pride. I 
realize clearly that we are in desperate 
ced ot more adequate dormitory 
facilities for women and men, parti 

larly lor women. These we must 

t the same time, through the 
generosity of alumni and friends of 
the College, we have accjuired several 
handsome buildings within the past 
decade. Our library, our science build- 
ing, Hudson Hall_ and our two new 
dormitories arc second to none. They 
are not only useful but beautiful 

But no person will be interested 
in further benefactions to us ur 
the buildings already given are taken 
care of. Despite all the efforts of oui 
maintenance stall, Hodson Hall is be 
ing gradually but seriously damaged 
by the roughness and thoughtlessness 
of some members of our student body. 
I suppose that the per-ons who post 
notices in the lobby of the building 
arc not aware of the costliness as well 
as the beauty of the paneling they 
are defacing. I know, too, that most 
of the minor abuses to paneling, doors, 
and furniture which eventually add 
up to major abusts are a result of 

1 appeal to all students to take 
care of our properly, to avoid any 
carelessness or thoughtlessness which 
may be damaging or cause unsightli- 

ness. I lake this occasion particularly 

junscl against the posting of any 

placards and other materials, of 

whatever description, in the lobby or 

the outside of Hodson Hall, and 

doors, door frames, and walls of 

other buildings, Bullctui boards ore 

available elsewhere on the campus. 

While on this subject 1 also bespeak 
your care in the disposing of litter. 
The fact that the Snack Bar is small 
and crowded means simply that we 
must take unusual tare in disposing 
of cigarette butts and paper of various 
soru. The same thing is trOe of our 
hallways. At the present time we have 
ordered sand urns to be placed at 
the entrances of all the classroom 
buildings, the library, and Hodson 
Hall. Please use them when disposing 
of cigaicile butts and other trash. If 
we do not take pride in the appear- 
ance of Washington College, no one 
else is likely to do so. We may very 
well forfeit the opportunity for a 
handsome Student Union Building or 
for a dormitory simply because some 
visitor to the campus is displeased at 
the litter which defaces its buildings. 
Your carelessly disposed cigarette 
butts and, your thoughtless mar- 
ring of furniture and buildings, may 
easily cost hundreds of thousands of 
dollars, i urge you to lend your aid 
and cooperation in every possible way 
to preserve the cleanliness and beauty 
of our buildings, our walks, and our 




In this issue of the EL.M will be 
found an apology for last week's 
assembly program. We think that iht 
apology is definitely in order. How- 
ever, an apology is hke locking the 
bam after the horse gets out. Why 
let the horse get out in the first 

We cannot see how a program thai 
was in such poor Uste could reach 
the point of presentation. Surely 
there must have been at least one 
rehearsal of the program. Surely this 
one rehearsal gave the opportunity to 
edit the program. 

We as college studenu want the 
nghi to a certain amount of freedom 
but we should also remember that 
with freedom comes responsibility. By 
the lime we are college students we 
should all have some sense of what is 
fit and appropriate. 

We feci that the faculty here would 
appreciate a "uke^.H' on them that 
vvas in good clean fun, as part of the 
program was, but the good was greatly 
overbalanced by the bad. 

We could keep our mouih shut arid 
fwrgei the entire affair but if salt is 
iuM/<d in a wound it nuikes quite an 

I-ei us all try to profit by one faux 

To the Editor of the 

Washington Elm: 

After witnessing the assembly pro- 
5rtim sponsored by the F.T.A. on 
November 9, I think apologies are in 
order to President Gibson, Ihe faculty, 
and the student body. The program, 
as presented, was completely 
disgusting. I hope that the student 
body will not levy the blame on our 
F.T.A. group as the program was by 
no means symbolic of us, and most 
of our members were completely obliv- 
ious of the program as it was given. 
If criticism is to be given, and I 
feel that it should be — it should be 
cast upon the president and program 
committee of our group as it was our 
thoughtlessness and irresponsibility, not 
that of our functioning organization, 
Wc wish as a group to apologize to 
Dr. Minnie B. Knipp, our sponsor. 
In the future, I hope our F.T.A. 
Chapter will be worthy of the name 
wc have chosen to represent — Gilbert 
W. Mead. Hereafter, I assure you 
that more discretion will be practiced 
in making our F.T.A. Group an integ 
ral part of Washington Colicge.

In the midst of methodically attempt-

ncwly-acquircd alto sax, the thought 
occured to me to put down a brief 
of what is going and coming 
this world of the sharp and the 

With a gradual wending of interest 
the eternal triplet (Bop) and of 
c progressive sort, the music world 
regressing to its foundation, which 
a peculiar, unrelated Jazz. Wc 
n understand then that what we 
hear today under the pscudoncum of 
Jazz is not the fajniliar two-beat of 
the old Jazzmen but a style used by 
youngsters of the Bop, and the pro- 
attempting, without 
to recapture the 
original stylc- 

Howcver, the "Hackctt and J'hiL 
hps" hookup has put forth some com. 
mendable efforts — such as "Sooty 
Rampart Street" ; while Krupa has 
overstepped himself as a stylist in 
trying "Bonaparte's Retreat", Then 
the commercial efforts of the J. Dor- 
sey "Clambake Seven" should remain 
only for the ears of those at the 
clambake. Wc can, of course, count 
on the antics of Louis Armstrong 
aided by the capable work of Tea- 
garden among new stars capturing 
the horizon; look for Gene Ammon's 
"My Foolish Heart". 

For those, the lovers of the 88, 
all is not lost. George Shearing, the 
man who did more with the 88 than 
did Sousa with his brass band, is 
now on tour, contemplating a trip 
back to his native England. While 
remembering Shearing, look for his 
"Tenderly" on M.G.M. 

In the same vein, look for the

I was speaking before of re- 
gression, probably the most washed-up 
artist of this era is trying feebly to 
stage a comeback at the innocent 
hands of Gordon Jenkins' aggrega- 
tion. His name, Artie Shaw, is nc 
longer synonomous with real music. 

While regressing but not in the 
same sense, but rather with fond 
memories, wc look to the activities 
of one B. Goodman — who has joined 
with Teddy Powell, Jerry Gibbs and 
other capablcs to organize a new and 
better sextet; look for their record- 

Ai a lingering note take the hints 
to get; Bill Harris's "How High the 

Moon"; Barry Green's "Pennies from 
Heaven": "My Destiny"; Mr. "B", 
Gene Ammon's "My Foolish Heart".

I would like to point out columnwise one i 
again that any opinions, suggestions or criticism 
"Jealing with sports will be carefully consideicd 
and printed if so designated. The aim of th. 
sports staff this year has been to bring you, the 
reader, an unbiased coverage of the sports news along with a few

D.C. Choice — Bottled 

The Touchdown Club of Washington, D.C. in co-operation 
«,tb the Washington Post paid tribute to an Ail-American hopeful 
two weeks ago when they picked Bill (Bucky) Ennis of C U as 
Player of the Week. The selection was justified by Ennis's perform- 
ance agamst Galludet. In three offensive tries from scrimmage 
Bttcky gained a 103 yards that included a 89 yard TD jaunt The 
<mly other offensive play that Ennis partook in was a 76 yard punt 
return that was worth six points. 

The Sho-men deserve an extra pat on the back for "bottling" 
Dp Enms on offense and defense last Saturday while rolling over the

Not to be overlooked in tomorrow's 
contest is Loyola College who undoubt- 
edly possesses one of the top teams in 
the conference. Returning again this 
are Murrell Krouse of Bridge- 
water and Bruce Davenport, of Roan-

1949. Nevertheless, there is one Hop- 
runner, lanky Earl Grim, who 
might push Krouse and Davenport 
for first place honors.

Dim Montcro's Washington College 
Hevcn came from behind with a ter- 
rific second half surge to defeat Cath- 
olic U. 25-7 before a large Home- 
coming Day crowd last Saturday on 
Kibler Field. The Sho'mcn recovered 
from a bad first half to score three 
touchdowns in the final two periods 
and secure the win. Bucks Johnny 
Wilson and Joe Millner paced the 
Shore attack with two touchdowns 
apiece and Wilson kicked one e.xtra 

The Maroon and Black tallied the 

first time they had the ball. Miller 
capped a nine play 30 yard scoring 
drive by plunging over from the 
Cardinal one yard line. Wilson failed 
to convert. Cathohc U. took the en- 
sumg kickoflf and moved right back 
to even the score, Will Poms scorinq 
from the W.C. ten. Poms' placckick 
gave the Washingtonians a 7-6 lead.

Looking For 
Final Win 
At Juniata 

Washington Colleges Sho'iuen de- 
parted this morning on a nine hour 
trek to Huntington, I'a., the home of 
the Juniata Indians, 'i omorrow the 
grid elevens will wind up their re- 
ipcciive seasons with a two o'clock 

After a week of light workouts, the 

iMonteromcn arc invading the Juniau 

reservation in hopes of ending their 

season with a victory. Bolstered by a 

convincing Homecoming win over 

Catholic U., and the fact that the 

Indians are having their worst season 

recent years, the local lads are 

confident of a victory. 

Injuries, But 

Although badly handicapped by in- 

jinies to key figures in the line-up, 

[he Huntington eleven has a •■bright 

outlook" for tomorrows game. In the 

way of comparison, the tribe rolled 

over Lycoming 33-0 while the Sho'men 

down -cm 32-0. Juniata was also vic- 

Haverford eleven who 

the Montcromen battled to a virtual 

2 in a preseason scrimmage. 

Sho' Nu(! 
Montero and Apichella, the brains 
behind the locals, have been forced 
to juggle the line-up for the past two 
weeks to compensate for losses due to 
injuries. The win combination that 
ihcy fielded last week will continue 
to carry the ball for the finale. Back- 
field standouts, Wilson. Greto, Miller, 
Eisenman. and ^fagliochetti ' are in 
lighting, shape... although... minor 
sprains, ■'charley-horses". and cuts ir- 
tatcd ihc '■spce<isters" all week. 

Blue And Gold Indians? 
The Blue and Cold will field one 
the smallest teams the Sho'men 
have faced all season. The line, aver- 
iig'ig 177 pounds, features co-captain 
Coy Hicks. Weighing in at 158 
pounds, Hicks is a bulwark on of- 
fense as well as defense. In the scoring 
department, Juniata averages 163 lbs. 
per man. According to their coach, 
Bill Smaltz, the I'ennsylvanians are 
■going to rely on^speed and deception, 
rather than weight and power." De- 
fensive speed and altertness, it might 
be noted, could cripple the potent 
Sho' aerial attack. 

Probable Starters 

J-ate Sports Flash 

Washington College hooters scored 

32 upset over Drcxcl on the losers 

home field. Linde, Drexel, drew finit 

blood with a blast from scrimmage in 

front of the goal in the first quarter. 

Oriel, Washington College, shot one 

I the second quarter to tic the con- 

rst. Hernandez scored on a cross from 

niley during the ihird quarter 

Drexel center half pumped in a point 

to knot the score and Brandenbcrg 

provided the margin of victory as he 

scored in the concluding quarter 

Atheyraen, but such was not the case. 
An offensive drive was repelled and the 
B.U. team started to move the ball up 
the field nicely. As the formation 
moved in close in front of the net. a 
booming kick stopped the scoring 
threat but the defensive scramble left 
Shore General Buddy Brower 
conctous on the field. Captain Brower 
had been knocked down with a body, 
check and had split his head open on 
a rock. 

And The Game , . 
Another scoring drive by the visitors, 
produced the penalty for roughness 
against the locals. Stan Rostick did 
the honors when he drove a grass high 
angler past McHugh on the free kick. 
The dazed Sho'men finished' the re- 
maining minutes mechanically after 
playing a creditable "heads-up" ball 




































(Ed. Note) — Caite Miller suffered 
abdominal pains early in the week 
and maybe sidelined as a precaution- 
ary measure tomorrow.

The Juniata Indians and the Wash- 
ington Sho'men have met on the

A.O-Nu Wins Cup 
All of the fraternity houses were 
decorated, carrying out themes^ de- 
signed by the meml>ei>. Alpha Otnega 
Nu frrtiemiiy was awarded the 
fra'emity cup for the most original 
decorations. Their theme consisted ol 
a crouching Washington College cai 
stalking a raged Catholic l.'niversit\ 
cardinal. Last jear the cup was aw; 
ed to Lambda Chi Alpha for their 
jan presentation of "Bop City". The 
cup is presented on the decision of the 
faculty committee for fraternity acti- 
viljcs, which consists of Dr. McLain. 
Dr. Clark. Dean Bradley. Mr, Bameii. 
and Dr. Hardcastle. 

In addilion to decorations, the fra- 
ternities celebrated with open houses 
for all returning alumni members. 
The Lambda Chi's held a supper party 
at the Country Club on Saturday 

Panhellcnic LunchciMi Presented 
The three sororities staged a Pan- 
hellcnic luncheon on Saturday after- 
noon in Hodson Hall to entertain all 
active and alumnae sorority members. 
This idea was adopted last year to 
replace the usual open house sessions. 
Homecoming Queen Crowned 
Saturday afternoon carried the cele- 
bration to a climax with the football 
viaory over Catholic U. During the 
halt. Dr Gibson crowned the elected 
Homecoming Queen. Marlene Meyer. 
Miss Mever. a Sophomore from Havre 
dc Grace, Maryland, expressed her 
thanks to the students for the honor 
that lhe\- had bestowed upon her. 
Last years Queen,, Barbara Stone, was 
present to panidpatc in the cere- 
monies. When interviewed on the field 
she expressed an alumni observation, 
"Washington College is wonderful." 
Dance Successful 
Lee Cook, Piesident of the Varsity 
Club, has announced that the Home- 
coming dance at the armory on Satur- 
day night was a big success. He furth- 
er added that the dance exceeded the 
Varsity Club's hopes. As yet. there has 
been no oScial statement of the 
actual profits. The money obtained 
from the dance is used by the club 
to buy the varsity sweaters worn by 
all of the members. 

On Sunday, the last of the cele- 
bration was completed, with a gradual 
return of the college to status quo.

Would you be interested in learn- 
ing how to go crazy in one simple 
lesson? Well, here is the formula — 
spend one night in Gl Hall. 

An average night in GI Hall begins 
at approximately seven P.M.. it can 
easily be discovered when seven has 
.■cd because mass hysteria takes 
place in one wing of GI Hall. I 
usually start the ball rolling by read 
ing poetry in a loud clear voice (with 
my door wide open). The rooms next 
to mine and across the hall from mine 
arc the fint to respond. They 
spond to my oratory by slamming 
their doors, swearing, and uttering 
hotrihle threats. A few minutes I 
the lovely strains of a uke (wit 
missing string) coine drifting di 
the hall. ah. sheer beauty (ugh') 
Immediately following the notes of 
the uke are six lo seven voices (all 
in the loudest discord possible) sing- 
ing their evening's i-epertoire of dirty 

eleven-thirty two enterprising 
directly across the hall from me 
decide to liven things up. They have 
their room a tape recorder on which 
they record the evening's highlights, 
clcvcn-ihiriy when things are 
peaceful they open their door and turn 
an their little recorder at its loudest 
I'olume and play back all the noise 
they had recorded. All hell breaks 
loose. The noise and hubub carries 
on until twelve and then sleep steals 
over the scene and peace reigns over 
Gl Hall. 

The lowset order of society in Lhasa, 
holy city of Tibet, are members of 
the ra-gyap-pa, whose duty it is lo 
dispose of the dead. These people, 
who live in hovels outside the city, 
must follow the Tibetan religious cus- 
tom of returning each body to the 
elements from which it originated — 
earth, fire, water, and air.

Three doors up from iiie lives a

into silence. The lovely strains of the

to play loudly, if at all after ten

.■\bout nine-thirty someone decides 
to start a water fight by pouring 
rater under several doors, and then, 
as if by magic, doors open and every- 
appears with water pistols (I 
think they hide them under their 
beds ai night) — the fight is on. In 
retalliation for a squirt someone 
throws the heavy metal garbage can 
(which is always loaded with gart 
age) — the building shudders, and 
walls and doors crack and threaten to 
split asunder. Then for no apparent 
reason the noise ceases: the hall 
empties; doois slam shut; silence 
reigTLs once more (for exaaly three 
minutes). The baseball fans appeal 
Everynighi two characters attempt to 
play baseball in the hall with a 
pong paddle and a golf ball, and three 
nights out of everv week they succeed 
in breaking the overhead blub. The 
ball plavers get tired around ten- 
thirtv and silence once again begins 
its futile attempt to rule over Gl Hall

Forensic Incorporates 
New Division On Campus 

At the beginning of the semester 
several students proposi-d the csCal 
lishmcnt of an Economic and Soc 
ology Club on campuS. The idea mi 
with the approval of the Economii 
Department but it was found th: 
no tiiTie\ could be scheduled for the 
meeting of such an organization. How- 
ever, as a result of a mutual agree- 
ment with the Forensic Society, the 
new club has been incorporated i 
that Society as a separate divisi 

The purposes of the Economics and 
Sociology Division arc to establish ar 
extra-eurricular activity for those stud 
ents particularly interested in the field 
and to discuss current problems per- 
taining to it. 

Bill Trueth, Vice-President, has con- 
tacted the Economics Club at West- 
ern Maryland College and it is under- 
stood that Dr. Townscnd of the Eco- 
nomics Department of that institution 
will speak to the local group in the 
near future. Plans are being made for 
a field trip to a General Motors as- 
sembly plant early next year to ob- 
icrvc tlie assembly procedure. 

The new division has extended an 
invitation to all students to attend its 
next meeting, the date of which will 
be posted. 


Juniors Get 
Best Grades 

Tabulations on the psychological 
testing program for the 1950-1951 siu- 
deni body has been completed and in- 
dividual students, particularly seniors, 
may secure their scores in the Dean's 
olTice [or the years iu college to date. 
As a general rule the median scose 
for each successive year is higher due 
10 the withdrawal of students at ihe 
close of each academic year. This year 
there is a variation in that the Juniors 
have a higher median score than the 
Seniors. The median intelligence tjuo- 
tientsarc as follows: Seniors. 119; 
Juniors, 122: Sophomores, 117; Fresh- 
men. 113; and Entire study body, 118. 

For students who are further inter- 
ested in securing additional psycholo- 
gical test scores on themselves othci 
tests are available in the Dean"s Oliice. 

All students planning to gradu- 
ate in February, 1952 or Summer 
School, 1951, are urged to make 
formal application for graduation 
in the Registrar's Office. Hence- 
forth, all students must make for- 
mal application lor graduation 
one year prior to receivii^ (heir 
degrees. All students are requested 
by the Registrar to complete and 
submit a "Summary Sheet" to their 
Collie record. Forms are avail- 
able in the R^strar"* Office. 


The annual Christmas assembly, 
sponsored by the Choir, was presented 
yesterday to usher in the Christmas 
season. The entire program was under 
the direction of Mrs. E. Winifred 
OpRrandc. Mendel Heilig served as 
host announrer, and Ralph Leonard 
was scriptural narrator. 

A proccMtonal opened the program, 
with the choir sineine "O, Come All 
Ye Faithful". Followin,? this, the en- 
tire assembly joined in the sinking of 
traditional carols. 

Two choir numbers, "O Holy 
Nieht" and "Qr-su Bambino", pre- 
ceded a orcsentation bv a mixed quar- 
tet of "Lo, How a Rose EVr Bloom-

Library To 



Theater — from Ritual to Broad' 
way, an exhibition prepared by the 
editors of Life Magazine, will be on 
view 10 Washington College students 
in the W, C. \fuscum from Decembei 
II to December Ifi. The exhibit is be- 
ing sponsored by the Library, 

The display traces the history ol 
theater from its beginning to tis pre 
sent shape in the western world. 

The exhibit is made up of twent> 
five panels in four sections. After an 
introductory panel which suggests 
something of the variety of places of 
theatrical performances the exhibition 
opens with a section on The Begin- 
ning of Theater. This depicts the fes- 
tivals which gave birth to [he Greek 
tragedies. The Second section is de- 
voted to "Tragic Theaters". The six 
panels of this section deal with Greek

Ferguson Hall 
To Be Scene 
Mon. - Tues. 

.As their rnidscason prescnialiiin, the 
Washington Players will again present 
three one-act plays, consisting of a 
fantasy in the comic vein, a mystery 
and something new, a portion of clas- 
sic literature. Casting for the plays 
will be held next Monday and Tucs- 
dav at 3:30 in Ferguson Hall. 

The fantasy picked by the Players 
plannmg committee to be presented 
IS tht "Devil and Daniel Webster", 
the play version of Steven Vincent 
Benet's story. It is typical American 
folklore set in a framework of comedy. 
The student director of this play is 
Ralph Leonard. 

For a touch of mystery, the "Mon- 
key's Paw", W. W. Jacobs' thriller 
story will be second on the presenta- 
tion agenda. Helen Roe will take 
charge of direction duties for this one. 

Tapping the classical field of talent, 
the Players will try for the first time 
a scene from Shakespeare, choosing 
the court scene from the "Merchant 
of Venice". Directing this venture 
into Elizabethan drama will be Bob 

The casts consist of twenty men 
and only four women. It will definitely 
be a man's night when the plays are 
presented to the Washington College 
campus. Also in use for thrse plays 
will be a number of extras who will 
lend atmosphere to the scenes in one 
or two of the productions.

In an attempi lo expose ihe student 
body lo 3 bit of culture, the adminis- 
tration made an excellent choice by 
iuviung Frofessor Ebold I'aslukhoff, ol 
the Delaware School ot Music, to play 
at the regular Thursday morning 

After a brief talk iii which Professor 
Pastukhofl explained the composer's 
attempts to capture ihe various moods, 
he opened with a superb rendition of 
Bach's Choral Preludes. Bach is usual- 
ly loo intricate or heavy lor the less 
musically inclined. Due to (he interest 
and understanding needed to appre^ 
dare Bach. Professor Pastufchoff's 
choice of the lighter "Preludes" was in 
excellent taste. The adcpiness of his 
presentation was probably the best on 
the program. 

His next selection, Fountains of 
Villa D'Esie by lJszi_ was quite capti- 
vating and, I believe, everyone in the 
building mentally envisaged the bub- 
bling fountains as only Liszt could 
make them do. 

The next three selections by Chop- 
in (Ntxxume, Valse, and Polonaije) 
were very pleasant, though it would 
appear that Chopin wrote with two 
motives. The first, of course, to give 
the listener the viarous pleasure} of 
his music; the other seems to show 
the listener the dexterity of the 
nimble-fingered pianist. 

Debussy's dare dc Lune and Chop- 
in s Polonaise seem to be the choice o( 
most pianists at recitals lor the pur- 
pose of giving interest to an audience 
which isn't particularly interested. The 
former was played excellently by Pro- 
fcssor Pastukhoff who seemed greatly 
impressed by the composer. Hij besi 
performance* were ol Bach and De- 
bussy selections. 

The program was concluded by a 
comparison of two works giving the 
composers' thought on Fire. The lasi 
was one of Imrbi's favorites, de Fallas' 
Fire Dans. 

At the audience's request Professor 
Pasuukholf returned lo play first 
waliz by Chopin and ended wiih two 
short walL/es by Braham,. Ihe difTi- 
tuliy in playing the latter could only 
be appreciated by anyone having ever 
attempted Ihcm. 

The audience's rciponw was one ol 
acceptance and lack of inusital appre 
dation. Sp<jntaneous burMs followed 
Polonaise, Clare dc Lumc, and the 
Fire Dam, all o( which wtTe quite 
popular and ihrcatened Tchkowsky" 
p(.pularity as -The 1 in-Pan Alley 
Composer. This show, elearly thai if 
the Mudeni liody were exposed moi 
often lo the finer poiniv of culiu: 
•he ■■pearls" would l>e<ome more 
pa li table. 


Of the two-hundrcd-odd books add' 
cd to the library in the last month 
or so, there arc a few which arc not 
education textbooks, sociologital trcat- 
isfs, cssai-s into that murkiest of all 
modern fogs — science, sports manuals, 
or cobblcgook about poetry. There 
are at least foui 
books anyone can 
read and enjoy. 



Fearful Joy", by 
Joyce Gary, "The 
Lost .Art of Pro- 
fanity"', by Burgi 
Johnson, ".Animal 
Farm." by George 
Orwell and "The 
Thirten Clocks," 
Blom by Jas. Thurber. 

"A FEARFUL JOY" is a story 
about the transplantation of Victorian- 
ism into bohcmianism and how it 
doesn't work. Tabitha is a remarkable 
person (as arc all of Gary's charact- 
ers) who is seduced and traduced 
through three generations and who 
only occasionally experiences that 
fearful Joy in living about which the 
Victorians were so skittish. The book 
is much more than this, though. 
Like "The Horse's Mouth", it is a 
thoroughly modern novel written in 
the grand tradition of the English 
novel. If the last sentence doesn't 
make much sense I'll put it this way: 
after James Joyce and his rotten imi- 
tators got through changing the novel 
form around to suit themselves, there 
wasn't much left except one master- 
piece (Ulysses) which isn't a novel 
so long as there is a definition ol 

ic novel". Gary, who in my opinion 

one of the finest novelists of the 
past twenty-live jrars, has proved 
that a writer can still take themes 
congenial to his contemporaries, write 
in a language they can understand, 
and yet not get lost in the dismal 
fens of sex and the "proletarian 
movement," but rather infuse in his 
work some of those ennobling quali- 
ties of great literature. 

ITY" is a whimsical study of the sad 
slate of modem swearing, as the title 
indicates. Grtintcd that we don't have 
to read a book to know that all of 
our bad words, imprecations, and 
maledictions have been so debased 
that they are meaningless, it is still 
fun to read about. On the last page 
of his book Mr. Johnson suggests in 

cartoon that he would rather be 
damned outright than damned with 
faint praise, but I'm damned if I 
can think o( anything to say either 

'•ANIMAL FARM" is a satire of 
communism, and a good one. Orwell 
has a rebellion of farm animals which 
ousts the farmer and for a while 
everyone is happy. But the pigs, 
smarter than the other animals, soon 
take over the whole shebang, and 
proceed to make a pretty good thing 
Jl of it for themselves. In the end, 
hile the pigs arc having a banquet 
for some of the men with whom they 
have had dealings, the other animals 
peer through the window and lo! 
they can't distinguish pig from man. 
lesson for all of us. As in 1984, 
Orwell's last book on the same theme, 
there is maintained a high level of 
iilc with a pronounced lack of 
If Orwell does manage to stay 
on tiptoes most of the time, he al- 
ways walks. 

a charming little fairy-tale about a 
cold, wicked Duke; a warm, lovely 
Princess; a hot, handsome Prince dis- 
»i;uised as a wandering minstrel; and 
a host of wizards, witches, and ghouls. 
It is a gentle and delicate story full 
of subtle humour and the triumph 
of goodnr-ss, and which can best be 
r'Tommcnded by quoting. It begii 

"Once upon a time, in a gloomy 
castle on a lonely hill, where there 
were thirteen clocks that woaldn't

and his niece, the Princess Saralinda. 
She was warm in every wind and

hands were as cold as his smile and 
I almost a» cold as his heart. He wore 
gloves when he was asleep, and he

Card Of Thanks 

While my thanks may appear 
lo come somewhat belatedly, ihb 
b the first opi>ortunity I have 
had, since my recent misfortune, 
lo express publicly, tlirough the 
columns of THE ELM, my very 
warm and sincere gratitude for 
the generotis expression ot sym- 
pathy shown nie by both faculty 
and students on the occasion of 
the death of iny wife. Although 
I questioned the propriety of my 
accepting such a gift, it was point- 
ed out lo me tliat it would be 
inipos.sible lo return it. And it 
ccTtainly would have bcoi un- 
gracioRs to do so. It i.s difTicult 
lo express myself properly on an 
occasion like this. May I simply 
say to all of you, thank you?

Kings Colleg e^ Invading^age^he 



Enthusiastic cage fans will get their first peek at the '50 version 
of the Flying Pentagon tonight at the local Armory. This should 
prove a bang up scoring duel between our own Nick Scallion and 
King College's George Dempsey as well as a test of height against 
speed. Every man on the visitors squad stands at least 6 feet. Last 
year the "Atheymcn" lacked only experience and earned a trip to 
the play-offs, where they spanked Roanoke 70-64 before bowing out 
to a strong American U. team 57-78. 

Dixie Scoring Race 
Emerson Johnson, Hampden-Sidney, has taken an early lead 
in the M-D individual scoring race. His 26 points against Towson 
Teachers Saturday was the highest single-game ouput of any per- 
former during the first week of the season. A notch behind Johnson 
comes Joe Delia Ratta, Catholic U., who garnered 23 points against 
Towson, followed by Bucky Kimmet, Towson, with a three game 15 
point average. 

Nice Going Men 
Congratulations are in order for a host of athletes this week. 
Joe Ingarra and Jack Nacrelli were chosen as co-captains of the '51 
football eleven; Vince Hungerford was elected to captain the soccer 
•quad; and Paul Becker was picked to lead the cross-eountry men. 
Also, to Harry Miller and Stump Gardner who were voted by their 
football teammates being the outstanding back and most improved 
player, respectively. 

Weaker Sex? 
The Sacred L was the scene last Wednesday of a rough n' tough 
hockey game between the Girls Varsity and the football team, (the 
bruisers). Bonnett ruined the "gals" chance with two driving goals 
and the "gents" came out victorious, 2-1.

Although it's winter and the frost 
is on the pumpkin, Dr. Clark is wast- 
ing no time with the lacrosse team. 
Practices have been held every day 
for the past two weeks on the high 
school field. When interviewed by 
the Elm as to the purpose of these 
practices, Coach Clark said that "al- 
though things look pretty good for 
this spring, we must keep building 
for the future and this advanced prac- 
tice will give the less experienced 
stickmen some practice." 

The schedule this year is to be the 
most vigorous of any previous year. 
As yet the schedule has not been re- 
leased by the Athletic Department, 
but it will include such top-notch 
teams as Navy, Duke, Loyola, and 
the best team in the county, Mount 
Washington. Prospects look good, with 
veterans ready to replace the three 
starters that were tost by graduation. 

Of the 25 or more men practicing 
daily, about 10 are new either to the 
campus or to the game. Coach Clark 
is giving quite a bit of attention to 
hesc men and to the goal, which

who averaged 15 points per game while 
amassing over 300 points.

Navy Tops Atheymen 

In Court Scrimmage 

Washington College's "50 basket- 
ball squad jo'urneycd to Annapolis 
last Friday for its first warm-up game 
of the season with Navy. The scrim- 
mage consisted of a regular game 
and half of another. Navy came out 
tops in both, 73-35 and 35-28. 

Navy, with all but one lettermen 
returning, proved too much through- 
out for the smaller Washington five. 
While Dave Mullaney and Captain 
Joe Fitzpatrick were outstanding for 
the Middies, one could not overlook 
the sensational play of Williams, Mc- 
Donough, and Pat Corrigan, ex- 
Washington College eager. 

Nifty Nick Scallion dumped in a 
futile 16 points for the Sho'mcn in 
the regular game. Kcnny^ Sullivan 
controlled the rebounds and Bernie 
Rudo played a better than fair game 
for the losers. 

The locals were off tremendously in 
their shots, goaling only 13 baskets 

piled a total of 982 points and holds 
just about every individual scoring 
record in the Mason-Dixon Confer- 
ence. Bill Brogan. an aggressive ball 
player who hustles all the way, will 
probably get the call at center assist- 
ed by Jim Taylor and Jack Smith. 
Taylor, tallest man on the squad has 
been sidelined for two weeks with an 
aggravated back injury and may see 
limited action. Captains Ed "Cool 
Goon" Gunning will probably sec 
plenty of action as will Don Samele, 
deadly set shot artist and Bernie 
Rudo. who proved last year that small 
men can play with the giants. Missing 
from this years pentagon are "Babe 
Johnson" and Lee Cook, who are 
ineligible for college competition. 
Cookie is now devoting his time to 
coaching a fraternity team in the intra 
mural league, while Babe has taken 
over the reins of the College Jayvecs, 
Jayvees In Preliminary 
The preliminary set to. scheduled 
for 7:00 P.M. will bring together the 
Coltege Jayvee squad and the College 
All-Stars. Probable line up for the

Rod Ware at forwards; Zimmerman at 
center: with Mole Jannigan and Lan- 
ducci at guards. 

1 63 attempts. The defense, too, was | tcr, 12, 

ragged, allowing the fast-breaking 
Navy team to chalk up 30 field goals. 
Greater height allowed the Academy 
team to control both boards. 

The scrimmage was a mild succcu 
in that it gave Coach Athey a good 
idea of the weaker points of the team. 
Following another practice session with 
Denton's Bobcats, the Sho'mcn should 
be in tip-top shape for their initial 
encounter, Friday night. 

Scallion Leads Team

Coach Ed .-\they"s baskctcers de- 
feated the Denton Bobcats of the

W.C. Players 

In a move designed to create greater 
efficiency within ihe group, the Wash- 
ington Players tentatively adopted a 
new constitution last week. Final 
adoption, revision, or rejection was 
postponed until after their next pro- 
duction in March in order to allow 
a trial period for the new consti- 

The document was written by a 
Constitution Committee consisting of 
J. Touchstone Jones, electrician, and 
Bob Elder. President, with assistance 
from Pauline Koumjian, Treasurer, 
June Williams, director of "Double 
Door", and Bob Waddell, stage man- 

As a result of the new constitution, 
J. Touchstone Jones was named to 
head the newly formed Promotion 
Committee. Another feature of the 
new constitution was the abolishment 
of the vice-presidency-, an elective of- 
fice formerly held by Sandy Jones 
who was appointed Production Man- 
ager under the new scl-up. 

Also established was the Policy and 
Finance Committee, to include the 
President, Secrciar>' and Treasurer of 
the Players in addition to the chair- 
men of the promotion and production 
committees. Provision was also made 
for the temporary appointment to this 
committee of other persons, including 
current directors, jf the need arises. 

A routine election, held to fill the 
offices required under the constitution, 
resulted in the unanimous re-election 
of Bob Elder, President; Phyllis Scitz, 
Secreiar>-: and Pauline Koumjian,

Because of the graduation of Men 
Bowie, Larr\> Brandenburg and Bill 
Tom last year, it looked as if 1950 
would be a dark season for the hill 
and dalers. However, team spirit was 
high and Filmore opened the dual 
meet campaign by leading his team 
lo vicior\' over Gallaudei College. A 
strong Loyola unit then invaded the 
Shore and handed the Mavoon and 
Black ii"s hrsi defeat, in a closely con- 
tested affair- This was the second con 
secutive individual triumph for Dry- 
den, in which he established a new 
cotii-sc record. 

The following week found Johns 
Hopkins on the Shore, led by Eavl 
Grim. Although Grim broke the re- 
cently established record. Dr^den 
once again headed his squad through 
the goal posts to another team victory.

Christmas Bells 


I heard the bells on 
Their old, familiar carols play 
" And Wild and 'sweet " 
The words repeat 
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men! 

.And thought how, as the day had 

The belfries of all Christendom 

Had rolled along 

The unbroken song 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men! 

Till, ringing, singing on its way. 
The world revolved from night to 

A voice, a chime, 

A cbant subh'nie 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men! 

Then from each black, accursed 

.The cannon thundered in the East, 
And with [he sound 
The carols drowned 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men! 

It was as if an earthquake rent 
The hearth-stones of a continent, 

.And made forlorn 

The households born 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men! 

And in despair I bowed iny head; 
"There is no peace on earth," I said; 
"For hate is strong, 
.And mocks the song 
Of peace on earth, good-will to^icn!" 

Then pealed the bells more loud and 

"God is not dead; nor doth he sleep! 

The Wrong shall fail. 

The Right prevail. 
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!" 

. Hen: 

W- Longfellow 


With all iU' happiness, Christ-

Message From 
Dean Livingood 

Ouring ihe following weeks there 
M'lll be upportuntty for scudcnis to 
Lake a \3nciy of class i fiat lion and 
vocaiiuiial aplitude ic^ls. Announce- 
ment will be made from time (o time 
tuoccniing the tests. There is iio obli- 
gation for any student to take any ol 
the tcjt^. However, the student tvho 
is interested in knowing more about 
tUDueU will take advantage of [he 
oppon unity. 

In view of the mting program set 
up b> the armed forces, it is dcsirable 
(or all men and ivonicn to become 
familiar with the type of tests given. 
Taking tests gives experience in know- 
ing how to attack test situations and 
gives an individual tamJIiariiy with 
the variety of testing problems. Dur- 
ing Wurld War I! classihcaiions ivere 
made of testing problems. During 
World War II clauifications were 
made on the basis ot the .Army Gene- 
ral Cla>>ification Test. An opportunity 
ti* take this test is offered bv the 
Dean's office for inicrc\ied individuals. 

Quoting from a manual. "The .\rmy 
General Classihcaiion Test: The First 
Civilian Edition is designed as a mea- 
sure of general learning ability. It was 
developed to classify male and Icmale 
induaees of World War II according 
to their ability to Icam quickly the 
Juiies of a soldier'. On the assumption 
that modern warfare was highly teth- 
(itcal in nature, emphasis was placed 
upon tlie measurement of the psythf> 
l"Sical functions of verbal comprchcn- 
.ion, quaniiutive reasoning, and 
'pacial thinking." 

'Three types of icsl problems are 
employed: socabulary to mca-surc the 
verbal factor, arithmetic word prol> 
iciui to measure the number and 
'tr:i«Miing factors, and blotk counting 
to measure the space facioK — These 
types of items were selected to mini- 
tii'iK educational and cultural differ- 
aicei in ihe divcric -Army population, 
t'l measure intellectual rather than 
pcrsunaljti traits or spcdfic informa- 
ii(»n, and to appeal lo the average 
I'-iung adult as sensible." 

Ihcie is an opponunity for any 
>tu(lmi to lake psychological tests a.s 
well as personality tests, including 
«iidi letLs as the Bell Adjusimcnt In- 
trntorj and the Bcrnrcuter I'ersona- 
fit> Invetitory. 

Announcement will be made con- 
cerning time for giving the following 
i-'xational aptitude test* in the 
column of The Washington Elm atiei 
Jaotury S, 

1. Medical Aptitude

No longer do the dead sqtteak and 
gibber in the streets. The modern 
world has replaced that son of thing 
with professionals who do siiueak and 
gibber after the dead. Stich an one is 
the man ivho wrote itvo pages of 
gibberish about G. B. Shaw in Time, 
November 13. 1050, pp. 30-31. Owing 
to the reluctance of Time to divulge 
the names o£ its writers, we do not 
know who w roa the piece, but I 
imagine him to bL a man who once 
took a short course in Modem Drama, 
and who somehoiv didn't do his les- 
sons between Isben and O'Neill; 
3 man who somcuheic heard that 
Swift md \o1i'iire were satirists, and 
wtio has read 
sotJLii historj* 
ilii' Eighteeneth 
t tiiiiin. and ior- 
.jintcii most of it. 
Ilu^ num. call 
him Ishmael, is 
so burdened by 
the facility of his 
own iheioric, and 
by the prose style 
of- Time (which 
has become 
bearably precious) that he is ptey to 
that very fault he finds in Shaw; e\- 
peiiness in "absurd juxtapositions and 
non seijuilurs. His prose is made of 
sentences ivhich have less and less to 
do with the preceding ones - . ." After 
making loo much of Shaw's being 
Irish, too much of his connection 
with the Eighteenth ccniui7. too 
iiich of his Fabianism, and [ou much 
of his cantankerousness. our Time- 
server goes out the door wherein he 
came. .\nd none too soon. Ii's getting 
to the place whcVe Time is totally 
unable to report anything without 
making wisecracks about socialism, 
just as the New Republic has its otvii 
peculiarity the other way. The edi- 
torial in the Baltimore Sun a day or 
so after Shaw's death, was, in its own 
way, just as bad. Someone should 
point out to the journalists that it is 
NOT necessary lo write, when they 
have nothing to say. (Someone should 
point it out lo me, too). Shaw would 
be amused. 1 think he might poini to 
the text in Proverbs "Smite a scorner 
and the simple will beware. " or "The 
scorner is an abomination to men." 
Shaw knew why authority cannot sup- 
port scorn.

The Freshman and Sophomore foot-

aid the incoming Freshman.

Frank Browcr, "Buddy". "Sam 
Spade'", etc., is one of those seldom 
seen, but well known figiues on cam- 
pus. He lived in Price, Md. and went 
lo school there until the fifth s;radc 
when he went to Church Hill and 
stayed until he graduated from high 
school. In the fall of 1946 "Sam" 
went to Washington and Lee Univer- 
sity in Lexington, Va. but transferred 
to W. C. after his freshman year. 

In February ol 1 948 "Buddy" 
pledged Theta Chi and held the posi- 
tion of treasurer last year. Perhaps 
the soccer field and baseball diamond 
are where "Sam" has distinguished 
himself 'the most, for he has four 
years of both to his credit along with 
the captaincy of each this year. Plus 
all this he has played four years of 
intcrmural basketball and is a member 
of three years standing in the Varsity 
Club. Buddy's other activities include 
Business Manager of the Elm, a mem- 
ber of O. D. K. and treasurer of 
the Senior Class. 

Durin,(5 the summers "Buddy" has 
worked as an attendant in Sykcsville 
Mental Institute, a waiter at "Pocono 
Gardens" in Pennsylvania, and as a 
Chicken "Expert". 

"Sam" majors in Economics and

Humor Is A Weapon 

[Adapted from The Cavalier Daily) 

The University of Florida, whose 
tendency to award semester hours for 
such subjects as Bathing Suit Posture 
has long disturbed olhcr Colleges o( 
Liberal Arts, has added another new 
wrinkle to education. The University 
has added a course in Wit and Humor. 

Profes.sor W. E. Moore, who is 
teaching the ha-ha course, describes 
its main purpose as follows: "To 
develop the student's ability to perceive 
the comic elements in situations and 
in people without being upset by them 
— and, above all, to recognize the 
comic elrmcnts in himself." 

It would be easy, of course, to 
dismiss Professor Moore as just an- 
other bull in the academic china 
shop, but we detect method in the 
professor's madness. 

After all, in an age of depressing 
complexity, the ability to laugh at 
yourself is certainly a more construc- 
tive aid to living than nine Icnthi 
of the courses presently offered in 
college. When the draft notice arrives, 
there's not much comfbri in having 
majored in Foreign Affairs, or Geog- 
raphy. There is nothing left to do 
but laugh, and it helps to be good 
at it. 

Futhermorc, a sense of humor, ai 
a weapon, is unconquerable, and ncvef 
obsolete. In its arsenal are the rapid- 
action snicker, the rccoilless chuckle, 
and the sixtcen-inch guffaw, primed 
at a mopicnt's notice to demolish 
over-«eriousne5s and blast pomposity

Sho 'men Down Kings; Bow To P.M. C. 



Although outshone in the scoring column by Nick Scallion last 
Friday, George Dempsey. Kings College forward, attracted consid- 
erable comment from local cage fans. It was apparent throughout 
the contest that the visiting quintet was moulded ,around the tow- 
ering forward, who moved with smoothness and coordination, 
cliaracteristic of the terrific ball player he is. His 24 points prove 
that he is a constant scoring threat, being particularly effective on 
tap-ins. Big George has another year of basketball eligibility and 
should draw plenty of comment in Eastern cage ranks. 


In an effort to stimulate interest and friendly competitive spirit 
among the fraternities a four team bowling league has been organ- 
ized. The teams consist of 5 men each, and activity is expected 
to get under way Thursday, January 5, at the local bowling center. 
The league will be tested for a couple of months and, if it works 
out satisfactorily, other groups will be encouraged to organize teams. 


The major leagues have tossed out the player bonus rule and 
lugh school agreement. (The minors had previously voted to kill 
both rules.) 

The bonus rule, whereby players were paid for signing their 
contract, allowed a player only one year of minor league seasoning. 
Then, in the case of major teams, the player had to be put on the 
roster, or waivers asked on him. 

The high-school rule was a "hands off' sign to the "pros" 
so long as the athlete was still in high school.

The W. C. hooters opened their

more goals in the final period to win

at the hands of the U. of Delaware

an early lead and it wasn't until the 
final period that the locals were able 
to score. Walt Ortel and Jesse Bran- 
denburg shared the scoring for the 
Shomcn. Baltimore U. handed the 
Maroon and Black their third con- 
secutive defeat by the slender margin

minutes left, B. U. scored the winning 
goal on a penalty kick, giving them

Scallion Leads 
State Scorers • 

Nick Scallion 
Leads Team 
To Victory 

W. C. opened its. 1950-51 basket- 
ball season with 56-40 win over Kings 
College, of New Casde, Delaware, last 
Friday night at the Chcstcrtown .Ar- 

Nick Scallion took individual scor- 
ing honors with 35 points, getting 19 
in the first half. The Shore "quintet 
jumped lo a quick 7-0 lead early in 
the first quarter. After both teams 
reached double figures in the scoring 
column, the Maroon and Black main- 
tained a fifteen point margin, leading 
32-20 at half time. 

The boys from across the Bay were 
never out of the money until late in 
the final stanza. With their big for- 
ward, George Dcmpscy, they were a 
constant threat, as his 24 points will 
testify. Dcmpsey was the East's third 
highest per game scorer in the 1949- 
50 season, and is an ever present 
scorer against any team. 

Coach Athcy was able lo give his 
entire squad a chance to see action. 
Butch McHugh and Bill Brogan were 
compelled to sit the final quartet 
out because of fouls. Kenny Sullivan 
was close behind with four personals. 

Scallion had his eye fixed on the 
hoop from the outset of the game; 
his 35 points being just three shy of 
the court record of 38. Next to Scal- 
lion in scoring was Bcrnie Rudo with 
five points. The remainder of the 
scoring was divided among the rest 
of the squad. 

Bow To P.M.C. 

The following night, the locals 
traveled to Chester, Pa., and found 
the going pretty rough. Pennsylvania 
Militarj- College handed them their 
first court defeat, 86-63 at Hyatt 
Armory. -W Ingber contributed 22 
points for the victors, but yielded 
top scoring honors to Nick Scallion 
who dumped in a futile 28. 

Kenny SuUivan, hitting from the 
outside, garnered 10 counters for the 
W. C. quintet, followed closely by 
Harry Miller with 9. Scallion appeared 
to have his sights well fixed on the 
hoop, but was forced out of the game 
raid-way through the second half be- 
cause of personal fouls. At one point 
during the last half P.M.C. staged one 
long scoring spurt during which they 
scored 27 points to Washington's 7. 

Nick Scallion, Washington College's 
southpaw basketball star, has lost none 
of his accuracy at the hoop cords. 
Early returns from the Stale's nine 
collegiate polling places indicate that 
the Hazelion, Pa. "kid" is due foi 
another bang-up season. 

So far. with only two games under 
his bell the slender junior has bucket- 
ed 63 points for an average of 31,5. 
(This docs not include the West Ches- 
ter game.)

Holdovers Mile 

Holdover Mile 

Upon the gradfialion of Larry Bran- 
denburg and Mickey Hubbard, this 
year's mile relay team will not have as 
easy a time retiring the beautiful 
Washington Evening Star Trophy that 
the Maroon and Black had so little 
trouble winning last season. 

Dim Moniero has called all indoor 
trackmen out for practice and a dili- 
gent group has been working all week. 
Two of the top men of last year's 
relay team arc back. Kenny Howard 
and Jim TwiUey. However, the job 
of rounding out the four man unit, 
will by no means be easy. 

Ihe Shoremen have entered only 
two winter meets, those being the 
Washington indoor games and the 
South Atlantic meet in Baltimore. Due 
to lack of man power and expense, 
the team will not travel to New York 
North Carolina. However, several 
members ot our leam will be run- 
ning for ihe Baltimore Olympic Club 
which has scheduled eleven meets this 
winter. The ihindadLs who have lum- 
cd out Ibis week are Fil Dryden. Fred 
La Wall. Frank Byham. Tom 
Benson, Paul Becker, George Eichet- 
burger. Harold Garrett. Jack Nfc- 
Collough, John Minnick, Ken Howard 
and Jim Twillcy.

Design New Type 
Football Shoe 

new stv-lc football shoe has rec- 
ently been revealed by one of the 
fcading equipment manufacturers. This 
.hoc assures reduction of stumbles, 
fumbles and falls. A ring cleat has 
been placed on the sole directly 
beneath the ball of the foot and an 
.ddilional set of circular arc clcflti 
las been added on the heel and toe. 

.\ccordine to tests made at a north- 
rn iunvcrsity laboratory these clcati 
give more traction, better getaway, 
quicker and surer stops, and greater 
maneuverability. The ring cleat, first 
revolutionary- change in football ihocf 
in 25 years, is made of light-weight 
aluminum alloy, ft allows more foot 
support with an assurance of reduc- 
tion in the number of blisters; and 
clogging of mud resulting in loss ol 
traction is eliminated. 

Football authorities report that a 
number of injuries are ankle, knee 
and hip with a large percentage re- 
sulting from twisting forces on the 
kg. The new cleat shoe provides a 
broader platform of stability, oiTcrs 
better traction, and therefore enables 
the player to turn with greater ease 
and with less chance of twisting an 
ankle or knee.

Krebs appeared several times on the 
Washington College campus to lec- 
ture about his experiences and know- 
ledge obtained while an agent of both 
the Nazis and Ciimmunisis. The 
Mount \ ernon Literary Society pre- 
sented him during one of the assem- 
bly programs, and he spoke on the 
conditions in Germany that had pre- 
cipitated the ceonimic and political 
circumstances in the country. 

Under the pen name of Jan Valtin, 
he produced in 1941 a book concern- 
ing his work as both a Nazi and Com- 
munist agent, "Out of the Night". 
Because of the work's timely appear-

and received the Book of the Month 

Mr. Krebs was born and educated 
in Germany, and by 1926 was in-

After training in espionage, he enter-

difficulties that placed liim in San

rest of his life denouncing the ideas 
that had formerly intrigued him. He 
exposed Russian as well as German 
secret police methods. During World 
War II he scr\-ed for two years in 
the Pacific and received an award for 
his military action. In 194? he ob-

sion in the near future. Other colleges 
and universities have been faced wiih 
the same difficulty. For e\ample, at

W. C. Represented At Stick Convention 

At hey men Bow To Teachers; Topple W. M. C. 




With two games under iht-ir belts since the holiday vacation 
tlie Sho-men of Washington College still boast the states top scoring 
star in Nick Scallion. Over a 5 game span the nifty southpaw has 
compiled a lofty 28.6 average. 

In the post holiday lilts Nick has dumped in 21 and 31 points 
respectfully against West Chester State Teachers and Western 
Maryland. The Western Maryland contest marked the first Mason 
Dixon Conference game for the locals and they won a thriller in 
the final moments on two quick field goals by Danny Samele. 
Appie, Athey, Johnson, star . . . 

Giad to see "Babe" Johnson who was declared ineligible for 
college ball, going great guns for the Denton Bobcat quintet of 
the Eastern Shore Basketball League. 

Coaches Apichella. Athey, and Johnson form an integral part 
of the squad that has the Bobcats in second place, one half game 
behind the pace-setting Georgetown five. 
High School Star 

Down at the Eastern Shore one certain Steve Gulyas. Ocean 
City High center, is attracting considerable attention from rival 
coaches. The 6 foot 5 inch youngster has racked up 74 points in 3 
games for a respectable 24.2 average. 

In a recent contest with a Salisbury quintet he scored 22 point; 

before retiring after 2 minutes of the third quarter. Such a giant 

might prove quite an asset to ■iuch a small crew as W.C. floors.

During the past three weeks there 
have been six thinly clad track hope- 
fuls training diligently in preparation 
for the Washington Evening Star 
indoor track and field meet in Wash- 
ington, D.C. tomorrow night. 

The task of retiring the beautiful 
Shaw trophy lies in their ability (o 
outrun several other outstanding 
Mason-Dixon schools. Our main threat 
mav be Catholic University, howeiei. 
Bridgewater. Randolph-Macon and 
Roanoke College are hy no mean* to 
be forgotten. The trophy, donated by

1 he Maroon and Black needs but 
one more victory to gain permanent 
possession of the trophy. However, the 
relay tomorrow night is not lo be a 
440 yard mile relay, but a medley mile 
relay. That is, the first man runs 
:0 yds., the second, 220 yds., bui the 
third man runs 440 yds., and the 
anchor leg is a distance oE 880 yds. 
The six runners taking the trip are 
Ken Howard, Fred LaWall, frank 
Byham, Jim Twilley, George Eicbel- 
berger and Fil Dryden. Kenny is to 
sprint the first 220 and LaWall or ' 
Byham the second. Jim Twilley will 
run the 440 and either Eichelberger 
or Dryden is to run the last half-mile 

Due to the graduation of Braden-

been weakened, nevertheless, this year's 
squad is in good shape and will give 
all competition a run for their trophy

. C. onslaught last Saturday night 
the locals handed out a 56-55 heat- 
ing in a Mason-Dixon Basketball Con- 
ference game at the Chestertown 

This marked the conference opener 
for both teams, ThtT Washington quint 
has now won 2 of its 5 outings, while 
W. M. has been dropped in 6 of their 
7 starts. 

Washington's Nick Scallion was high 

an for the night with 31 points, 
upping his season average to 28.6 
points per game. The nifty southpaw 
tarted off the game strong, amassing 
20 of his team's total of 27 points at 
half time. 

Western M. began timiing on the 
steam in the second half, and, with 
the aid of their C (t. 5 in. center. 
Chuck Hammaker. held the lead deep 
into the final stanza. 

Tke fourth quarter was characterized 
by hotly contested decisions, hard 
scrappy play, and highlighted by 
Danny Samcle's two final set shots, 
which put the game on ice. Danny 
played his outstanding game since 
donning a Sho'man uniform along 
with collecting 9 points. 

High man for the Gieen and Gold 
was Hammaker witli 20 markers. 
Kenny Sullivan and Don Press each 
had II for the evening.

A man may stay in school after he 
has passed his Array physical foi 
varying length of lime depending on 
certain circumstances. After he hi 
passed his physical, he may no lunger 
enlist. This seems to have caused quite 
a bit of indecision among college men, 
especially at this time of vMr. Should 
Ihey enlist noiv and chouse their ser 
vice, or wait for their physical. 

We sec by the newspapers that many 
colleges throughout the nation are 
wondering what to do about the stU' 
dents who are leaving school to enlist 
before the semester ends. Washington 
College faces the same problem. Some 
of the schools have decided in give 
the students credit for the unlinished 
[erm; other schools have decided to 
record an automatic failure in these 
instances. Some have decided to record 
ihe simple fact that the student has 
withdrawn. This last solution seems 
to be a fair one but not necessarily 
the best. 

We do not believe that a student 
should be given a passing grade just 
because he feels forced to enlist now 
or be drafted later. We do think that 
a person who enlists and has success- 
fully passed 14 weeks of a ICiveek 
course could be given a semester mark 
on the basis of his H weeks' work- 
Ihe person who has been failing in a 
course for 14 weeks should be given 
a failing grade. This would help to 
keep the school records neat with no 
dangling loose ends. 

This move would also help to start 
a little thinking on the part o( the 
"escapist" enlistee) — those who are 
enlisting because Ihey are failing any- 
way, and who would no doubt be per- 
fectly happy to have their marks left 
in the misty realm of uncertainty

Elseivhcre in the ELM can be found 
an article lelling of plans being made 
to obtain funds for ihe World Student 
Service Fund. This fund merits the 
full support of the undergraduate bo<ly 
and the faculty. It guarantees continu- 
ance of the far-reaching aid WSSF 
lias in the past been able to bring to 
scholars and scientists abroad. 

One of the most important aims of 
Ihc WSSF campaign is to help the 
CARE-UNESCO Book Fund program 
w supplying the latest American scien- 
tific and technical literature to war- 
damaged universities, libraries and 
medical and scientific institutions.

All Ihe ground on both

Since our return to Wa-ihingii 
lege after the holidays, we have heard 
much grumbling concerning Hod- 
Hall. We thought at fust it might be 
just a seasonal thing due to the usual 
jaded appetites and heavier pui~ies 
which generally follow a holiday. 

We did a little poll-taking on 
own to sec what the siory was (we eai 
iheie loo). We contacted students 
ranging from the campus critic, whom 
nothing pleases, to the more conserva- 
tive. The opinion seem to be — the 
original quality of the food was good, 
the menu was varied as could be 
expected and as a rule there 
plenty of it, but a truly palatable 
meal was an e.vception rather than the 

We have heard that it is impossible 
lo cook for a large number of people 
and still have the food taste like 
home cooking. We know ihat thi 
true but we feel that a change for the 
better could certainly take place 
the food now served at our tables. 

Another thing is the last minute 
announcement of change in time as to 
when a meal will be served. Here is 
an example of what happens at pre- 
: A person who is supposed to eat 
on the second shift at noon Saturday 
happens to miss breakfast. M the 
breakfast which he missed it was an- 
nounced that Ihere would be only one 
lunch served (at 12:15) due to ihc 
small number of people on campus. 
This person assumes there will be two 
lunches served as there sometimes are. 
At 12:45 (his regular lime for lunch) 
he goes to Hodson only to find that he 
has missed the boat. He ihcn has to 
eat elsewhere at his own expense after 
missing a meal which he has already 
paid for. (This also happens occasion- 
ally on Saturday nights and Sundays 

It jcems to us that it would be 
fairly easy for a notice to be posted 
in Hodson Hall at least ^ hours in 
advance when there is to be only one 
shift — then it could be left up to 
the student to find out whai lime a 
meal would be served. 

.■\nolher solution would be: When 
here is to be only one shift, serve 
he meal at the usual time that the 
second shift is sened which would 
n lunch at 12:45 P.M. and dinner at 
6:00 P.M. It is possible Ihat if this 
syitem were adopted some of the 
people might forget the new system 
and be 45 minutes early for a meal 
but. at lust nobody should be late. 

loosened. Dr. Smith brought his work- 
ers from Philadelphia to Chcstertown 
to build the college, and. to go on in 

: words of Mr. Barroll. "The diffi 
_._lty of keeping these laborers conteni 
away from their homes and families 
must have been great; but Dr. Smith 
a profound student of human 
nature, besides being a most cmineni 
divine and successful educator, and 
his method of overcoming ihis diffi- 
culty is roseate and elTcctual."

What Classification Do You Come 

Are You a Felix Foch Or a Boris 

By Ed Keller 

Many students «lo not know how 
the mechanism of marking works. 
Therefore, we present to the un- 
washed a cross section of the semester 
marks. In the words of the immoral 
bawd — 

"A B or not a B, that is the question. 
Whether 'lis nobler in the mind 
to suffer Ihe classes and lectures 
of outrageous professors, or to 
lake arms against a C of troubles 
and by passing, end them."

For the past month he has been tak-

wining and dining, the old boy came 
through. This is oiily right considering 
the fact ibat [he good professor is 
Abercorabie's uncle. 

Boris Bulsh studied like a fiend for 
the big exam. On the night before the 
exam he met the professor presiding 
over a Barmaid's Union meeting at 
Mother Kern's and, after ten beers, 
managed lo lalk his way into a B. 

Clarence Crapii studied for hours 
on end. Of course, ihis is hard on the

which bar his professor patronized and 
therefore had to go into the exam

bother to study. He went to night

cing daily managed lo stretch his neck 
muscles enough lo get a D.

Fosh). Felix had a swell time the 
before ihe exam. He was so pie- 
eyed Ihat he could not even see his

to sit in Ihc front of the room. The

President of Washington College, and

Declaration Of Manpower 

As a rcsnli of the discussions held 
at the convention, attended by pronii 
ncni educators and scholars from al 
parts of Ihc country, a 'DECLARA- 
TION ON AtANPOVVER" was drawn 
up and submitted to Mrs. Anna Rosen- 
berg, Assistant Secretary of Defense, 
The following is a partial list of pro- 
posals recommended by the Ai 
to the Department of Defense; 

II: We request [hat appropriate 
authorities take immediate steps

is now postponed or deferred will be 
pcnniiied to apply for entrance, at 
termination of their postponement, 
branch of the armed services in which 
voluntary enlistment is now permitted, 
regardless of any inteii'ening action by 
the Selective Service System. 

"Ill: Since the shortage of trained 
pei-sonncl is becoming acute, and wo- 
men power is an ever more important 
source of leadership in civilian scnice 
and in the professions, wc urge ade- 
quate and imniediaie comprehensive 
planning lo ensure the consi 
Utilization of the ability and training 
of all college women. 

"V: Certain groups of students 
enrolled in colleges and univer 
have progressed so far with their 
studies, that i[ is in the national 
interest to allow them to complete 
Ihcir coulee. Among the students to be 
deferred during the present transition 
al period should be: 

A. Students in professional schooh 
of theology, of medicine, dentistry and 
related health fields, and in the gra- 
duate schools in maihemaiics, engi- 
nccriug, and physical and biological 

B. All siudenls who will have com- 
pleted two years of undergraduate

ited four year colleges. 

"VI: An enrolled college student 
who reaches the age of induction 
while successfully pui-suing a course 
of study should have his induction 
postponed lo the end of his academic 

"VII: If eighteen year olds are to be 
subject to imiveisat military service, 
wc assume that it is unlikely that 
more than half could be inducted in 
the first year of the new legislation. 
To reduce to a minimum ihc uncer- 
tainty in the minds of prospective and 
present college -students, ii is highly 
desirable that those who are not to he 
inducted before the opening of their 
academic year should be notified that

next semester. Bub Jackson, will as- 
sinne the duties of Vice-President, for-

The present college faculty will 
teach the courses to be offered this 
sunmicr. Campus facilities, including 
Ihe dormitories, will be ^l^ed as the 
need arises. 

Qucstionaircs To Be Disiribuied 
Quesiionaires will he distributed to 
the student body early in the next 
semester. (Sec sample below). The re- 
sults of Ihe questionaire will be used 
to determine the number ol students 
intertilled in the summer session as 
well as the courses desired. A probable 
minimum of ten persons must indicate 
interest in a particular course before 
it will be scheduled. It is expected 
that rates will be based on a Hat 
charge per semester hour. 

Reasons For Session 

Dr. Gibson listed ihcsc as ihe main 

reasons for the summer school plan: 

(1) In view of the present national 
situation, there is a growing reali/a- 
tion that students should be allowed 
to accelerate their course of study. As 
a result, a number of colleges arc in- 
stituting summer programs this ^eau 

(2) The summer course will give high 
school students an opportunity to com- 
plete at least one year of toltcge be- 
fore entering the service. 

The summer courses will not be 
limited to Washington College stu- 
dents, but will be open to anyone 
who is tjualified for college work. It 
is expected that a number of teachers 
will study here. 

Second Time In History 
This will mark the second time in 
its history that Washington College 
has offered a summer session. Similar 
programs weie operated on this 
campus in 1942 and 11M3, at which 
time approximately one hundred and 
forty students Avert in attendance.

It 15 quite commeadabic that WC. 
ba^ so last a number ol patriots, but 
I must say it says \er\ little for lite 
ability of this insliiutitm to produce 
rational beings. In all of this talk 
of enlbting 1 have yei lo hear one 
participant of the last fracas say any- 
thing but d(;Fogator> remarks about 
the memalil) of these patriotic youths. 
The Air Force is being Bt>odcd with 
enlistments just as it tvas in the last 
war. \s in this previous period approx- 
imately rin.lKW of these sons of Daeda- 
lus will be in the infantry wiihoui 
e\er seeing the top of a cloud. Whai 
seems to be the affinity they have with 
regard to the ground forces, I fail tt 
see the diflerence as to where one get: 
shot; except he'll hit with much les« 
intensity if he's on the ground when 
il occurs. The Navy, they argue, feeds 
well and "has clean sheets." On the 
other hand, it would be difficult to 
run any distance or to "dig in". Of 
course there's the Marine Corps which 
is one step lower than the inner circle 
of Dante's inferno. U seems apparent 
that it is merely the lesser of two evils; 
finals or the lenice. and in the ser- 
vice you get a uniform. They tnay very 
well get a number of us in uniform 
nest summer but with the fluauating 
poticy of the present regime they 
draft all holders of the I'uVple Heart 
and Congressional Medal before they 
get those who have seen no service, 
Ccrtainl) the sersices don't seem pre- 
judiced against either group. 

The whole situation seems quite 
patadovical. They are drafting persons 
into an army which still pays income 
laves (which may sotm be 40%) to 
light an enemy which our governmeni 
refuses to recognize as being in exist- 
ence. Recent eietiis cause us m at 
IcJii (|ueslion the workings of the 
present adminisintiion. Our ('resident 
having j»etty iquabblc* with insignifi- 
cant crilitv; Senator McCarthy brawl- 
ing in cloakrooms and screaming 
"C.immunist" to anyone gullible 
enouifli 11. listen to his idiotic raniings: 
and the (ccent replacement of Lucas 
and 'I \dings with the uninformed 
Dirlsun and Builer necessitate a build- 
ing up of tension at the choice of out 
voting public. But these are things 
thai we must accept. 

To atiume the escapist's prtlicy of 
"enlisting l>efure they draft me" 
synonomuus to me with "quitting 
school in case I fail." To excuse your 
actions with the ohslous fact that the 
confused state of affairs is too much 
tension for an aimrnphere of itudy is 
at»oluiely ridiculous. It isn't difficult 
to become confused and it's quite easy 
to say that everyone else is confused 
and tliat we're noi at all sure where 
we'ie going. But there are very often

Why that's Mackey Metcalfe, senior 

Mackey is a native of Chesicriown 
but got her education ai the Hannah 
Moore .Academy just outside Balti- 
more. However, come college time and 
he came back home to enier Washing- 
ton College in the fall of '47. Since 
that fall she has become ven active 
college activities, especially in the 
sports field. She can be seen most any 
day in the fall down on the hockey 
field or pushing in baskeis during 
the basketball season. 

Besides sports. Mackey has been 
a verj' active member of .■\lpha O; 
cron Pi Sorority which she joined 
in her freshman vcar, and is now S' 
ving as their Rush Chairman. She 
also a delegate to the Pan Hellenic 

This year we find Mackey serving 
as Feature Editor of the Elm. presi- 
dent of C.I.A.A.. secretary of the 
Senior Class and ihe Canierburv Club. 
,\ busy gal to say the least. However, 
this February will find her leaving 
all her activities and "Taking otT' for 
Hawaii's crystal beaches, a graduation 
present from her father. When asked 
what she was going to do there she 
replied, "Pick pineapples and 
Wakikii Beach and get freckled, I've 
been practicing every summer on the 
art of how to loaf in the sun. " 

Mackey was selecied as the "Crescent 
Girl" by the Lambda Chi's during 
Homecoming festivities. She was also 
a member of the court of the Home- 
coming queen. 

She would like to be a second grade 
teacher when she graduates this June. 
Why? She says because second graders 
are still scared of their teachers? That'-

the external trappings of a self im-

which betray in internal weakness — a 
searching for a way to avoid if not 
evade responsibility. 

It is wrong to over simplify the 
problem at hand. Certainly we alt 
spend a great deal of time trying to 
find out when we'll be drafted or re- 
called. If we could only reali7e that 
in this the sooner we go the 
longer we'll be away. Ii is an old say 
ing and a sound one, that once the 
service gets its hands on you it does 
like to let go. These few years 
of a person's life cause a com- 
plete change in hopes, aspirations, and 
entire philosophy of life. They gii 
feeling that one is behind and 
shoulcl by-pass school or some other of life to catch up. And these 
draft age studenu think they feel a 
pressure NOW! Well, go ahead, fel-

the quota will be filled and the longer 
they'll wait to recall the old men.

found in the January 12 edition of the Baltimore Sun and was writ- 
ten by Bill Higdon — "Visiting teams and officials are complaining 
about the smoky atmosphere and dim lighting system in the Ches- 
tertown Armory, whi(*h Washington College calls it's home floor 
for lack of any other, The Armory just isn't constructed for 

As a result of such criticism and of unsportsmanlike conduct 
sliown at a recent Saturday night game, Coach Athey appeals to 
die student body to cooperate in two matters. First, that smoking 
be discontinued in the armory; second, that students please refrain 
from distracting the opposing team when they take their foul shots, 
Remember the saying: If you can't play a sport, be one anyway. 

Short Shots 

Congratulations to Filmore, Jim, Kenny and Frank for the 
fine job they did at the Evening Star Track Meet in Washington, 
They didn't cop the championship (missed it by .4 of a second) but 
were a constant threat to the finish .... 

The Fraternity Bowling' League was initiated at the local center 
last night with Theta Chi trading strikes with an independent team 
while the Nu's tangled horns with the Lambda's. The league, under 
the auspices of the Varsity Club, seeks to improve intra-school 
competition. Any organization wishing to form a team can obtain 
information from either Lee Cook or Jack Nacrelli .... 

Coach Apicheila announced this week that he was retirmg 
"ipso facto" from active sports competition. "I've had enough 
he said. As you know, Appie has been performing on the hardwood 
for the Denton Bobcats.

Chestertown Armory. . 

Again led by Nick Scalliun, ihe 
Slio*nicn jiunped Co an early lead, but 
the score stood 12-12 at the quarter. 
The locals put on a second period 
spurt to lead 28-20 at intermission. 

The third quarter saw B. U. come to 
life. Paced by guard Vern Mummert 
with 13 points, the Bees were able 
to draw the score to -10-37 at the end

Saa)eic, with one field goal and six 
foul shots, was second with 8 points.

On Friday, January 12, mid-season 
was reached in fniratnural basketball. 
A very efficient schedule has been set 
up by coach Apicheila with games 
being played in the afternoon and 
evening. There are ten teams in the 
league which is made up of school 
clubs, fraternities, and dormitories. 
Leading The League 

Theta Chi holds fust place in the 
league with seven straight wins against 
no defeats. The Oxinen are the only 
tundcfeaicd squad in the league and 
are giving a good exhibition of team- 
work and individual talent. John Cox 
holds the high scoring record in the 
League with a total of 89 points for 
seven games, for an average of 12.7 
per game. Cox also leads the League 
in points scored in a single game, 25. 
The Thela Chi's established a new 
record for points scored in one game 
by defeating Somerset 75 to 30 Tues- 
day night. 

Tie For Second Place 

The Newman Club and the K.A.'s 
are tied for second place, hot hi 
having won six and lost one. The 
K.A.'s handed the Newman Club 
their only defeat while dropping iheir 
only game to Theta Chi Courtmcn. 
The second half of the season shall 
prove to be an exciting race for the 
championship and any of the first 
four teams stand a chance of emerging 
he lop position. 

Relay Team 
Places Third 

Four-ienths of a second may not 
seem important to you or I. but it 
would have spelled victory for Wash- 
ington's thinclads last Saturday nighi 
in the nation's capital city. 

The Mason-Dixon medley mile 
relay, run by seven conference teams. 
was won by Hampden-Sydney in 
lime of three minutes and fifty 
seconds. Second was Catholic tJnivcr- 
sity, with the Ntaroon and Black gain- 
ing third position. Following the 
Sho'men were Bridgewatcr, Roanoke, 
Callaudct and Towson Teachers. 
Catholic U. Second 

I he race was run in two heats, 
tile best time determining the winner 
of the event. Hampden-Sydney ran 
it's 3:50.0 mile, to win the 
first heat. With Jim T willy riui 
ning the first quarter of a mile, 
Kenney Howard and Frank Byham 
sprinting the two 220 yard legs, and 
Fil Dryden finishing the medley ' 
a half mile run, the Shore squad 
edged out by Catholic University by 
two tenths of a second in a thrilling 
finish. The Cardinal's time of 3:50.1 
was just short of tying Hampden- 
Sydney's winning time in the first 

Therefore, only three tenths of a 

second sepaned the first three teams: 

Hampden-Sydney — 3.50.0 

Catholic Un. — 3.50.1 

Washington — 3.50.3 

Journey To Baltimore 

On February 6.^ the trackmen will 
once again take to the boards, this 
lime at the Souih .Atlantic Association 
indoor meet to be held in Baltimore. 
There will be no Mason-Dixon mile 
relay that night however, the Sho'men 
plan to enter the two mile open relay, 
in which the competition promises .to 
be plentiful.

Washington College, down in Ches- 
tertown, Md., had its best football 
record in 16 years during the 1950 
season, five wins and three, and 
gridmen from right here in Delaware 
County played minor roles in the 
success of the Sho'Mcn. 

First of all there was Domenic 
"Dim " Montero, the head coach. Dim 
came from Wilmington, played a year 
of football at PMC before finishing at 
La Salle, then coached the line at St. 
James for several years before accept- 
ing the job as Washington's head 
coach two years ago. 

Dim took over in 1949 and won 
four games, lost two, and tied two. 
The liny Eastern Shore college did 
even better this year with its 5-3 
mark, giving Montero a two-year 
record of nine wins, five setbacks, and 
two deadlocks. 

This fall there were seven Delco 
athletes on Montero's squad. Four of 
thcni — Harry Miller, Jack Nacrelli, 
Sammy Creto, and Bernie O'Connell 
— are products of St. James. Kenny 
Howard played at Eddystonc, localitc 
I'aul Desmond prcpped at nearby 
-Archmore Academy, and Ed Cinaglia 
performed in high school under Char- 
lie Tomasco at Clifton Heights. 

Miller played halfback and led the 
team in almost every dcpanmeni 
offense. He gained 682 yards rushing 
the ball, averaging 7.9 yards per carry 
He scored 13 touchdowns, half the 
team's total, caught 27 passes for 53! 
yards, and averaged a fraction over •!( 
yards in punting. 

Howard and Greto were second and 
third respectively in rushing offense 
and played in the defensive backhcid 
as well. Nacrelli was a standout at 
guard, both on offense and defense. 
He was awarded a trophy as the team's 
outstanding lineman and has been 
named co-captain for next season. 

Cinaglia was a defensive halfback 
and was largely responsible for the 
Nfaroon and Black's fine pass defense 
record. Eight opponents averaged only 
56 yards per game through the air. 
The Montero eleven, on the other 
hand, gained 1013 yards via forward 

Desmond and O'Connell alternated 
It center on the offense with both 
backing up the line on defense. Des- 
mond and Howard were both hurt in 
the Drexel game, one of the three 
setbacks, and both missed the last 
three games on the schedule. 

hington. incidentally. didn't 
pack as much weight as many good 
high school teams. The line averaged 
only 172 pounds and the backfield 
about 165. Only two of the squad 

ibers will be lost by grad 
and Montero is looking forward to 
another fine campaign next year pro- 
viding t'ncle Sam doesn't send "greet- 
ings" to too many of the holdovers. 

.Another Delco high school graduate 
at Washington is Steve McHalc, a St. 
James graduate of 1946. Steve didn't 
take part in the grid campaign but 
did provide us with most of the infor- 
mation on the county boys at his 
school. Many thanks, Steve. 

Topple Towson 
For 2nd Straight 

V\iih Nick Scallion breaking loose 
Saturday night with 30 points, the 
local cagers knocked off Towson 
Teachers College, 60 to -15, at Ches- 

The sleek lefthander easily carried 
off scoring honors, bucketing 15 points 
in each half. He made good 10 of 12 
free throws and dumped in an addi- 
tional 10 scrimmage shots. Bill Brogan 
contributed 11 additional counters, 
followed closely by Dan Samele with 

Hottes and Schaub each contributed 
11 futile markers for the Teachers. 

Leading by a slim 31 to 25 margin 
at half lime, the Sho'men roared 
back in the second half, ripping the 
Toivson zone to shrtxls. From there 
on, the outcome was never in question 
as the .Atheymen led all the way to 
the whistle. 

Washingion College succumbed be- 
fore the A. U. basketball team, 69-62. 
in a Mason-Dixon Conference game 
last Monday night on the loser's hard- 

Although he fouled out in the 
fourth quarter, Nick Scallion coped 
scoring honors tor the night with 22 
points. Close on his heels was A. U.'s 
Leroy Ishman with 20 points. 

The local lads got off lo a slow 
start, being held to four poini.s in 
eight minutes, while -A. U. was dump- 
ing 12 markers through the hoop. Scal- 
lion rallied to bring the quarter score 
to 14-13, with A, U. on the long end. 

In the second frame W, C. switched 
to a zone defense, and temporarily took 
the lead. 17-13. There arose a set shot 
contest between the Capitols Ed Mof- 
fatt and Danny Samele after each had 
made four baskets in as many tries 
in this period. Sanielee emerged on top 
for the night; 13-7. 

The second half opened with the 
Sho'men trailing 35-32, but with three 
quick baskets by Scallion and one by 
Butch HcHugh, they moved ahead 
40-35. The lead changed hands three 
times with the period ending 50-49 in 
favor of the Maroon and Black. 

. the final stanza opened, .A. U. 
lied the game with a foul shot, and 
then went ahead 53-52. .After the lead 
changed hands three more times, .A. U. 
gained a 6.')<58 lead as Scallion fouled 
out. .^, V. then increased their lead to 
69-62 as ihe game ended.

FRIDAY, JAN. 19, 1951 

Dr. Foosc Address

cenily as guest speaker for ihc Society 

of Sciences to present 

. ihc stndenti 

the \aried work of a geologist. 

In his talk entitled "The Geologist 
at Work" he developed through a 
scries of examples the many fields in 
which gttilogy plays a part. Refcning 
to the search for natural re5ouix:cs in 
the United State*, he explained how 
a geologist works in plotting out loca- 
tions for oil wells, metallic deposits, 
and clay formations. He brought oni 
the fact thai .f geologist must emploi 
just as much imagination as technical 
skill in his work. 

In construction work Dr. Foose said 
thai the Rcologist is becoming in- 
creasingly important in helping to pre- 
vent mishaps due to constructions in 
faoulty land area. During the last war, 
the geologist aided the army by com- 
piling all information about a ter- 
rain before an invasion was singed. 
Dr. Foose used Sicily as his example 
of this type of intensive geological 

As a conchision to his lecture, he 
presented a scries of color slides of 
mountains, canyons, glaciers, and 
vi)lcanocs which he has taken in con- 
nection with his studies. 

A graduate of Franklin and Mar- 
shall. Dr. Foss received his M.S, at

conservation mcasu 
Waters Hall and West Hall have been 
cloiicd for the second semester. 

A study was made by thevdniin- 
istration which revealed that class- 
rooms were not being fully uiili/etl 
in all the buildings. Under the second 
semester schedule, all classes have been 
moved from Waters Hall to William 
Smith, and the faculty offices have 
been transferred to the library or to 
Ferguson Hall. H was also decided 
that this would be an economy mea 
sure to eliminate the necessity i>\ 
having to light and heat the build- 
ing. In addition. Waters Hall will now 
be available for meetings at any houi 
of the day. 

On a similar basis. West Hall has 
liecn closed as a boys' dormitory. The 
former residents have been moved to 
one of the four other dormitories lo 
fill these buildings. 

Waters Hall is one of two frame 
buildings purchased from a closed 
\imv Air Base and remodeled in 1947 
for faculty offices and classrooms. West 
Hall was erected in 18,i4 as part ot 
the expansion of the college seventeen 
yeare after the original college build- 
ings were burned by fire.

At the beginning of the year, 413 1 
students constituted ibV total nuui- I

and 21 new inembers entered (o make

lor ihe second time in recent yeaj«, 
f.iiiiball will make itself conspirnous 
liv its absence from the aihledc priv 
i^iam ol Washington College, {^.aih 
I'd .Aihey, Director of Physical Train- 
ing, announced that baseball as well 
as football have been "indefinitely 

1-ooiball wa^ aUo dropped lor j 
period of tour years during Woild 
War II. The suggcsliun (o drop Ilie 
two spoils was made by ihe .Athleiit 
Council (o (he Board of Visitors and 
Ciovcrnoi's, which approved the mea- 
siuc. The Athletic Council is composed 
of Mr. Harry Russell, alumno< of 
Washington College. Chairman; Deiin 
Frederick G. Livingood. Mr. Fred 
Dumschoii, Dr. Joseph McLain, and 

Aihey cited as two main reasons 
for the cunailmcnt of both sports the 
anticipated drop in enrollment be- 
cause of the war situation, and econiv 
iiiic reasons. He stated (ha( the foot- 
ball team lakes up at least one half 
of the entire athletic budget. Suite 
the college is anticipating a drop in 
enrollment, the amount of mon^ to 
be alloKcd for the mainiainance of a 
successful sports program was expected 
(o be considerably lower. 

Dim Montero, football coach lor (he 
past two years, will continue (O serve 
on the Faculty in his capacity 3i physi- 
cal education instructor. 'I regret very 
much that football h,Ts to be dropped, 
as we seem to have been making some 
head-way, but under ihe present dr- 
cumsianccs, the .Athletic Council could 
not forsce other possible action." he 

Continuing, he stated. "( cspedaliy 
regret having to leave the boys on the 
team. The two years ihat 1 haie 
worked with ihcm weic two of tuy 
happiest years of coaching. I could 
not have asked lor bftter cunsideia- 
tion from anyone." 

Washington enjoyed two highly suc- 
cessful football seasons under Mon- 
teio's reign. In the two years that 
Montero has served a^^ coach, the team, 
consisting mainly of freshmen :md 
sophomores, won eight, hwi fi^e, and 
tied two. 

Washington College is the second 
team in the state lo drop football from 
its athletic program. Mount St. Marv's 
was the first. Two other teams in the 
Mason-Dixon Conference, Hainpden- 
Sydncy and Catholic L'nixersity, are 
also contemplating a similar move. 

Aihcy stated that baseball was also 
dropped because of economic reasons. 
The main spring sport will now" be 
lacrosse, which is becoming increa- 
singly popular at Washington. 

Alhcy expressed the hope (o revive 
the two sports as soon as conditions 
»nie "fc-a'iable". The iutramuial 
program will be enlarged next year to 
fill the gap left by the two var-ily

The Lean Years 

Washingluii College, frum all indi- 
cations, is fast ujjpixiaclung a period 
of ausicrily. The college this week 
tool, in another notch in iu belt with 
the dropping of two in:5Jiir sports. 
Economic considerations iverc uSered 
as the principal reasons tor thi^ ralhei 

Reccni events point out rallier 
vividly thai for the immediate future, 
at least, the colleges and universities 
of this counir), and particularly the 
small independent insiituuons. are in 
(or a fairly rough period. For many, 
in fact, it will be a struggle for sur- 

The reasons arc obvious. Many pros- 
pective siudenLs will be in pine bar- 
racLs, not in hy coiered u-alls. Second- 
ly, the low birth rate during and 
immediaiel) following the depression 
of the eari> I«30's has considerably 
towered ihe reserve supply of siudenl 
material. .And^ finally, the high cost of 
living and hean ta.xes l^ave would-be 
donori financialh strapped. 1 hc> hey 
day of philanthroph) is past, and the 
independent college will be among 
Ihe Hrst li> feel the loss. 

Washington College is a in 
point. .\ news stor) on page one give*' 
the unhappy details. Sevenleen form- 
er wudenls haie left for militan duty. 
The number in service, nr expecting 
to go, and thus did not enroll, is 
anthod>') Ruesi. That more will leave 
is a certainty. 413 student were en- 
rolled here lasi vemesier; 358 are now 
in classes, a drop of almost l'></c. 

Recently, in an informal uLL to the 
Senior Clai*. Dr. Cib.suu oiiilined an 
ambiiiou-s, highly creditable, and sorely 
needed building program. Dormitories 
were the first consideration. That such 
a plan is desirable Ls indisputable: thai 
it tan be accomplished is, unfortunate- 
ly, questionable. 'Hope spring* eternal 
from the human breast" 

Mf^^l colleges are looking optimu- 
tically. however, ai a noi-tob-distani 
future influx of >tudcnts. \ period of 
prfMperity is confidenily predicted for 
the later l^jO', when returning vete- 
ran.*, a, well a, the products of the 
higher birthrate of a decade ago, will 
agarn fl«Ml the campuses. Perhaps 
monci will again l)e flowing at ihai 
lime. There i., then, only the problem 
of hanging on until t>ctier djy» arrive.

I he Beacon, student newspaper of 
Rhode Island Slate College, was just 
slightly confused. 

"Getting out a newspaper is no 
picnic," it declared. "If we print jokes, 
students say wc are silly; it we don't 
they say we are too serious. U 
publish original matter, they .say 
lack sariciy; if wc publish things from 
other magazines, ihey say yve arc loo 
ta/y to yvrile our own. If we stay 
the office, wc ought lo be out rustling

c are not attending to business in 
the office. U wc wear old clothes, wc 
are insolvent college students; if yve 
car new ones, ive got Ihe money 
from graft. What the hell are we 
supposed to do, anyway? Like as not 
someone will say wc swiped this from

Allhough Russell Lyncs was ama- 
zingly thorough is his naming and 
describing the various types of snobs, 
the Daily .Athenaeum, student ncw.s- 
paper of West Virginia University, 
fell some campus snobs might be add- 
ed to the list. Here are a few of the 
.Athenaeum's candidates: 

"The Scholarly Snob. He regards all 
students who spend any lime on pur- 
suits other than study as immature. 
This type is easily recogniied by the 
frequency with svhich he can be heard 
lo mutter, "What do ihey come lo 
college for, anyway?" 

■The Socially Active Snob, who re- 
gards anyone ysho finds it necessary to 
spend an occasional evening in his 
room as a barbarian". 

"The Grades-Don'i-Mean-Any thing- 
Snob. This is the largest sub-division 
n the Campus Snob classification, it 
seems, and is composed of those who 
udy yvhen they have absolutely noih- 
ig else to do. Somehow the majority 
[ ihem make passing grades. .Ai the

'■.-\noihcr defect which I note, is an 
intermission m neglect, in those which 
arc governors iu universities ... or ol 
superior persons of visitation; to enter 
into account and consideration, y/heth- 
er the readings, exercises and oiher 
customs appertaining unto learning, 
anciently began and since continued 
be yvell insiitutcd or no; and there- 
upon lo ground an amendment «'■ 
reformation in thai which shall be 
found inconvenient." 

In accordance with this siatcment I 
have wondered at the cause of this 
institution having found, in the past 
three years, a need to lower the re- 
quirements to stay at AV.C, from H-l 
.40 to .000. Recciilly 1 came upon 
one of the causes. .\i one of the better 
Junior High Schools on the outskirts 
Baltimore there is a group of 
ilents whom ihc elemenlary teach- 
ci-s have seen fit lo advance to the 
lib (7th) grade. These students 
considered the second best class 
in the school. In an aitempi to accen- 
tuate my tepid acccrbitics on Ihe 
matter of education a friend fyvho is 
a icacher) reviewed for me — in detail — 
the failings of each of these pupils. 
7en or more h)si points for cheating 
points. I believe. None of them 
could spell words over four letters and 
he majority couldn't spell the four- 
letter ones. Such words appeared as 
'seicrs", "spighis", "pnnre", "boyll". 
'ne<ldis", "torn" (not a name), and 
reets". One child spelled "January" 
differently on four separate pages. The 
same person spelled his/her name 
hree different ways and as yet has not 
accomplished his/her aim. Why have 
they been advanced this far. If a 
teacher fails a student, the icacher 
must face a board of inquiry and is 
blamed wilh the child's failure. 

With this decline in scholarship on 
he clemcniary and collegiate levels — 
be one building toward the other — 
>ur scholastic standards will soon be 
tcgalive. Surely applied effort will 
(ring the indices of the present enroll- 
neni up. How. however, arc wc lo 
reconcile ourselves to ihe future 
enti-ants? If our scholastic standards 
are decreasing ai so momenious a rale 
n heaven's name will theirs l)c? 
Perhaps ihe board of Visiiois and 
Governors should draw a line as to ihe 
e of entrants to be admitted. Wc 
seen the rapid decline of St, 
John's before it bpgan its struggle

Attention Called To 

Absence Regulations 

-Absence regulations are clearly over-cuts. Fines 
explained on pages 08 to 101 in the 
handbook. Studenis should rca<l care- 
fully. Ignorance of the regulations can 
not be accepted as an excuse. 

"However, should a student

Cagers End Los ing Streak; Defeat Towson 




The questions most frequently asked on the hill since the 
abandonment of football and baseball have been in regard to 
, the future status of coaches Apichello and Montero. 

As yet there has been no official statement adequate to 
answer such questions, but many guess that Apichella will 
remain on the staft next year and will continue in his physical 
education classes as usual. The time he devoted to baseball 
in the spring will be spent directing intramurals. 

No definitr statement was made regarding Dim's future 
but the present situation has no direct bearing on his status 
as instructor. Dr. Gibson explained that the football coach is 
hired as an instructor and receives additional compensation for 

Of course the general opinion is that Montero will seek 
another coaching job next fall. Although it may be possible 
for him to remain here as a professor his love for the game 
is probably too strong to keep him in the classroom. From 
the moment he arrived on campus in 1949 his small squad of 
23 players won four. lost two, and tied two. Last season his 
gridders scored five victories in eight starts. 

Short Shots 

Looks as if lacrosse and tennis will get a load of attentior, 
this spring since baseball has been thrown out. Plans are under 
way to have the tennis courts surfaced before the' sunshine 
invites the nelmen to practice. Maybe lacrosse uiii be moved 
up on the former gridiron ... at least seats for the spectators 
are provided there. 

A bit of good news to rival teams . . . George Dempsey. 
King College's basketball ace withdrew from school to enlist 
m the Coast Guard. Xast season he was fourth high point- 
getter in collegiate ranks with 704 over a 25 game stretch 
His 28.2 average was second only to George King of Morris- 
Harvey. This season he racked up 287 points in 12 games. 

W.C. Stickmen Tackle 

Tough Schedule For '51 

Now ihat baseball has left ilie col- 
lege a great deal of responsibiliiy has 
been thrown on the shoulders of Dr. 
Clark and the Lacrosse team. Wash- 
ington athletic prowess this spring 
will be confined to track, tennis, and 
lacrosse. This hoiveicr, ivill not neces- 
sarily restrict the colleges notoriety, 
Lacrosse at Washington College always 
hai received a good deal of publicity 
from the papers in the Baltimore area 
There is every reason to believe thai 
this will continue. The Lacrossemen 
this year- will undertake their toiighi 
schedule since its post-war return to 
ihe local scene. Traveling as far ni 
M Hofstra and .Adelphi on Long 
Island and iNorih Carolina and Dnke 
in North Carolina, the team will un- 
dertake a 13 game schedule. .Also in-

Once again it was Nifty Nick Scal- 
lion leading the Athcymcn to their 
sixth win of the season. The classy 
left hanilcr hit the cords for 26 count-

for 13 games. Kenny Sullivan was nest

good 15 of 25 free throws, while the 
locals hit on only II of their 28 

After grabbing a first quarter lead 
of I'l-ll, the Sho'men registered only 
12 points during the second, bui man-

widened to ten points. 30-40. 

Scallion and Sullivan each dropped 
two field goals in during the final

Advance In 
Science Field 

l wo mpmberi ol the Class of I9:)0 
of IVashington College have received 
notice of advancement in their re^ 
speciive fields. Carl Paciulla. a gradu- 
ate student at the University of I'iits- 
burgh recently received a promotion 
after six months with the Carbide 
and . Chemicals Division at the 
Mellon Institute, Pittsburgh, while 
Gordon Lee St a mm lias been re- 
appointed Graduate .\s.sisiant iu Pliy 
sics at Dartmouth Ctjlege. 

In a letter to Dr. Charles Voleker 
who helped both alumni to enict 
graduate school, Parzulla wrote; "My 
work is going quite well and is quii 
diversified. I am preparing for work 
in technical development as a lechi 
cal representative for Carbide and at 
present am in the position of research 
assistant in Organic Synthesis. The 
term Organic Synthesis in our work 
covers a multitude of sins as actual 
organic synthesis is only, about one- 
twentieth of our job." 

While at Washington College, Pac- 
lulla was a member of Sigma Sigma 
Omicron during his Senior year. He 
najoved in chemistry ^nd took a 
iplit minor in physics and math while 
iko serving as a chemistry lab assist- 
tni. Paczulla is married and wrote 
3r. Voelker that a son, Carl Hugh, 
was a recent addition to the family 

Stamm's reappointment as Graduate 
Assistant in Physics. I'ated as one of 
the best in the nation, entitles him 
faculty rank. He expects lo re- 
ceive his Masters degree in 19.'»2, at 

hich time he will become physics as- 
sistant at the Case School of Applied 
Science. .As a student at W'ashington 
College he majored in inaih and 
minored in physics while serving as 
physics'lab assistant during his: last 
two years.

Attention Should ^ , . 
Given Brain Resources 

An \. P. dispatch this week quoted 
Dr. D-iniel Z. t.ibson to the cffctt thai 
Congres-i should look at the contem- 
plated draft from a vieivpoini ot brain 

"I feci strongly thai Congress should 
give its utmost attention to the de- 
pleting resource* in brains. 

"I think this country will put itscU 
in a rather despeiate situation if it 
doesn't rcaliic — as many European 
coiftjtiit-. have — that we need leaders 
in c\cr^ walk i^ life." 

Dr. Gibson's remarks weie included 
in a survey of opinion of prominent 
state college presidents and deans, 
whose institutions face enrollment tuts 
The general concensus was thai if 18- 
year-olds are drafted into the armed 
forces, qualified inductees should be 
permitted tr> return to college after a 
brief pciioil iil training. 

1 he views of Dr. Detlcv W. Broiik, 
pr&iiJent of Johns Hopkins Univcr 
sitv paralleled those of Dr. Gibson. Dr. 
Bmnk. a member of the National Re- 
sources and Development Boartl, stated 
that, "We need trained manpmver at 
all costs." 

Other views as gathered in the 
A. P. report were as follows: Dr. Jacob 
Kline, dean of St. John's College, said 
he favors drafting 13-year-olds, but 

"Many of these men could be seni 
back to college later. Give them a four 
to six months' training and release 
7.1,000 for college," 

The Verv Rev. Thomas J. Murray. 
S.J.. president 
doesn't belie\-c 

7:.,000 men will help the small college 

'■ I he .\rio> doesn't need the 800,000 
men iihich I understand they arc ask- 
ing for. In mv opinion, they could 
return one lulf to college after about 
four months' training. That would 
save ihe colleges and still provide 
enough men for the .\rm) ." 

Another educator. Dr. Martin D. 
Jenkins, president of Morgan Slate 
College, believes that present world 
conditions require an 18-year-old draft, 

Bui, he says, qualilicd men should 
be allowed to return to college after 
basic training, and Ihe total service 
period should not exceed 27 months. 

Dr. Lowell S. Ensor, piesident of 
Western Maryland College, agrees 
with Dr. Jenkins and Dr. Kline thai 
qualified men should be returned to 
school after a period of basic tiain- 

But another educator would leave 
the whole problem up to ihc niilitar) 
minds of the counli^. 

"It seems to me," says Dr. Leon P. 
Smith, dean of the -Arts and Science 
School of the I_'ni\crsit) of Maryland, 
"the best wa\ is to ireai ihcm (18-year- 
olds) all alike. Personally, I'm willing 
to leave it up to Hersht:\ and Mar- 
shall( Maj. Lewis B. ffetshcy. Select- 
ive Scrvict director and Gen. George 
C, Marshall, Secretary of Defense.}"

government's proposals, but he e\-

In Defense Of 
SpFing Fever 

By Dick WgMc 

Br the time this issue of The Elm 
appears it may be winter again, but at 
ihc present moment the land abounds 

,ith symptoms 



and an 

epidemic of spring fever seems to be 
getting under way. unseasonable as it 
is. Usually this matter of spring fe\er 
is looked upon as an incubus of the 
most malicious intent, reducing man- 
kind to idiotic blobs of protoplasm 
wishing nothing moic than to bask 
in Ihc noonday sun. I here can be no 
doubt that such a state of stupifaction 
detracts from the noblest endeavors ol 
man. and is to be avoided and con- 
deemed even to the extent of ostraci- 
zing its unfortunate victims for feai 
of spreading the coniagion. 

Perhaps this is the wrong atiitiidc. 
Perhaps spring fever is merely an all 
too fleeting vealiMiion that man in 
some primordial day; lived a simplei 
and happier life without being torn 
assundcr by his own ambition. There 
were no noble endeavors then, and 
man found it possible to get along 
without a thousand modem nuisances 
simply because he hadn't sold them 
to himselt yet. Somewhere along the 
line somebody got ambitious and in- 
vented something and his neighbor, 
naturally covciing it, copied it. And 
so the race was on. Things went from

Our small campus was honored last uefk end with the 
presence of a 10 19 (ootball hero, Eddie, Lc Baron. Eddie at- 
tended The College ol tile Pacific and in his senior year there 
was chosen Ail-American quarterback. He is probably best 
rcraentbered for his outstanding performance in the College 
All-Star Game against Philadelphia's mighty Eagles. 

Eddie spreads 173 lbs. over a 5 foot 8 inch frame and 
ajjpears lo be as solid as the rock of Gibraltar. He is a very 
modest, soft spoken boy and when asked ivhat he thought of 
Washington's campus replied simply. "I think it's great.'' 
Scallion Near Record 
For the second time in as many seasons Nick Scallion has 
come within an eye-la-h of breaking the school record of 38 
points for a single game, establislied by Gene Rook during the

Last year against Loyola Nick garnered 37 and repeat-

night: For those "bleacher-coaches" ivho deem Scallion a ball 
hog and glory hound here are a couple facts. Three times 
against the Mounts when he had foul shot!i, Scallion waived 
the ball outside. A fourth time, when a technical was caUed on 
the visitors, Nick could have, with that point, tied the recofd. 
Instead, he handed the ball to teammate Samele who sank the 

Incidentally, Nick holds the' Baltimore U. court record of

50.8 Points Per Game 

Washinifton College's Junior Varsity 
basketball team have accurod a total 
4 457 points in the nine garner played 
to date. This gives [hem an offensive 
iveragc of 50.8 points per game.

icored 351 for an average of 39 points 

a game. The Juniors highest score in 

irigle contest was 71 poiniei and the 

lowest was 38. Both of these were 

rainjt the College All-Stars. 

Ellsworth Boyd, center, so far is 

leadiftg the Jayvees individually with

popuUrity of the game has increased 
and it is played by most preparatory 
schools, high schooN. colleges, and 
clubs in the United Stales. The 
United Slates Intercollegiate Lacrosst 
Association his been vcrj- active in 
organizing and promoting the game. 
Each year aa A!l-Aroerican (cam is 
picked by the a.ssociation from the 
member colleges participating in the 
sport. The Wingate trophy. <mbl<v 
matie of the college lacrosse champion, 
ship, is awarded annually by the as- 
.XKiation to the outstanding team in 
the iniercollegc competition. 

Lacrosse was played in Washington 
College quite a few years ago but it 
waj dropped in 1934. The game was 
started again in 1948 when several 
lacrosse. enthusiasts, two of whom wei 
Charlie Hoffman. '.W, and Eddi 
Leonard, ■51_ suggested that the sport 
vcd. The students received one 
hundred per tent support from Dr. 
Clark who was also interested in the 
game and offered to coach the team. 
However, the sport was played on an 
dual club basis and did not re- 
ceive the support of the school until 
1049. Varsity letters have been award- 
ed the qualifying placers for the past 
■a years. 

In the three years of competition the 
team has made a very good record and, 
1519 and 1950, was cited as the 
Middle Atlantic champions in the In- 
tercotlegiate Lacrosse Association. It 
has won 30 of 34 collegiate games play- 
ed. Some of ibe 0Ut3|anding players on 
the team in the past few years were 
Charlie Hoffman and Jack Jackson 
who were chosen to play for the 
Southern All-Star team which is com- 1 
posed of seniors. Ray Wood holds the | 
high scoring record for all college 
competition in the country 
total of 140 points for the past three 
seasons. Last year Ray was elected 
to the third string of the AIl-American 
Lacrosse Team, 

This fast moving sport is constantly 
winning popularity in the minds and 
hearts of sports loving Americans. In 
years to come, with continued support 
thii may become the top sport in the

delivered addi esses at Washington 

The Maryland Senator otulined 
seven policies which (his nation rdu*i 
follow if it is to survive. "First, (here 
he no Communists in our educational 
ship for Communist China. Second, 
there must be no recognition of Red 
China by ihc United States. Third, 
there must be no Communist in oui

system. Fifth, there must be no Com- 
munists in our armed forces. Sixlb, 
there must be no Communists in labor. 
Seventh, wc must have no trade illa- 
tions with Communist pnwcTs,"

plosive statement. Furthermore, I'm

pears and again hollered. "Hoya Hoya" 
and then all mingled around the in- 
inpreier and became involved in a 
loud and lengthy discussion. 

Upon the termination of this verbal 

igagement, the interpreter turned to 

nilh and said, "Indian want to give 

.u gift." Immediately the politician 

started lo beam and said. "A gilt, 

thai's just what I want. 1 hat's jusr 

fine. What is itf" "Pri« bull", the 

interpreier replied. ".\ prize bulll 

Well. g<md heavens, I can't lake a bull 

back to Washington with me. You'll 

just have to tell the Comanches that 

1 appreciate their kindness, but I 

nin't accept it." 

With this, the inierprctcr turned 
back to the group of Indians, talked 
with them again, and then turned lo 
Smith and said. "Indian have decided 
that you no have to accept bull, Jusl 
have picture taken with him." "Have 
my picture taken with him? Oh, well. " 
thai's different, lii fact, that's jiisi fine. 
Why I'll have that picture in every

Scallion Sets Record 

Nifty Nick Scallion inkod a new school. record last Mon- 
day, sinking 39 points against visiitng Moravian College, 
no data could be found on the matter, it was generally con- 
ceived that the recorl of 38 was held by Gene Rook, and has 
stood intact until Nick blasted it this week, incidentally, tho^e 
39 points lifted his three ycai total to 1502. 

Letters To The Editor 

I would like to point out the fact that any opinion^, sug- 
gestions, or criticisms relating to sports will be carefully con- 
sidered and printed if so desired- With the sports picture on 
the hill now at a low ebb, and local sports news relatively 
scarce, any ideas the student body may have will be readily 
considered. If you have an idea, see the writer personally or 
contact him via Bo.\ 45, 

Short Shots 

The Moravian College basketball squad brought with 
them last Monday night a phenomenal average of 76,5 points 
per game, over a 17 game span. In their first three starts after 
spring vacation they piled up 2d2 points for an average of 
87.3 per cent. 

High scoiing Bill Werpshoski swelled his 22.5 average, 
netting 27 counters against the Atheymen, as his team went 
down in defeat. 80-58. Werpshoski, a senior, has totaled more 
than 1500 during his career at Moravian and with 4 games 
remaining to be played, the blonde youngster could soar to the 
1600 mark ... 

Many local spectators felt that the Moravian squad had 
been accustomed to a larger court, and that this, in part, pro- 
ved a handicap to them. Others felt that the visiting squad 
was, In plain words, "too cocky" ... 

The lacrosse squad will hold practice sessions in Baltimore 
during Spring vacation.

Cage Scandal 
Rocks Coast 

Three Long Island University bas- 
ketball players, including the high 
scorer among the country's major 
teams, admitted this week that they 
had taken in the neighborhood of 
$18^00 in bribes to "fis" seven games, 
four this season and three last year. 

Those arrested anil charged with 
thix)wing the games were Sherman 
White, hailed by many as the No. I 

'liege player in the nation; .\l Bigos, 
L.I.C team captain, and Lc Roy 
Smith, a high-scoring senior. 

The three admitted that they had 
been paid by Salvatorc Sollauo, the 
; gent who also bribed the C.C.N. V. 
. His middle-man was Lddie Card, 
L.I.U. senior, who was an outstanding 
guard on last years" L.I.U. squad. 

The college board of trustees lost 
no lime in taking action upon the dis- 
closures. At a special meeting Tuesday 

gbi it voted to end all participation 

I intercollegiate sports. This included 
cancellation of their four remaining 
cage contests. 

' The three stars were arrainged in 
Felony Court where their bond was 
set at $15,000 each, the same figure 
set upon Ed Roman, td Warner, and 
M Roth, the City College (New York) 
players also entangled in the bribe 

Without counting "bonuses" of 5200 

Whip C.U. 

The Washington College quintet 
broke a three game losing streak by 
whipping dangerous Catholic Univer- 
sity 6j-:.3. Led by Nick Scallion and 
Jim Taylor, who totaled 28 and IS 
points respectively to lead the MartKin 
and Black, the W.C. cagers coasted to 
their seventh Mason-Dixon Conrercntc 

The Shoremen were never headed 
in a game which saw them score seven 
points before the Cardinals could rip 
the cords. The closest C. U. could 
pull was 32-30 early in the third quan 
er as Cranston made three set shots 
in a row. 

W.<:. Cagers Slave Off Rally 

\Vilh Taylor and Sullivan control- 
ling the boards the visilors trailed 
20-10 at the end ol the liiM quaiier. 
However, Catholic V. came bark 
strong in the ne\t periotl. aiftl out- 
scored the locals 14-8. With le>s Chan 
two minutes left in the half Delia 
Rata, the C. V. sparkplug, finally 
totaled the first of his II points. 

The ihird quarter saw the Cardinals 
switch from a 2-3 zone to a man for 
man defense accompanied by a full 
court press, while the W.C. h\e con- 
tinued a 3-2 zone. The tempo ot the 
game quickened as the well condiloned 
C. V. squad threatened to close the 
scoring gap. Nevertheless, the Shore 
quint came back to open a sixteen 
point gap at one point. From then 
on it was just a matter of the locals 
coasting to another conference win.

Sets New School Rccoiti 

In his freshman year (48-49), Nick 
hit for 414 points and a 23 point aver- 
age. He followed up last winter with 
568 and a 2.i,8 mark. Monday njghl 
of this week he boomed a high 39 
against Moravian College, establishing 
a new school record and briaging his 
1950-Jl total to 520 and a 27.4 average. 

Whether or not he sets a new high 
for Washington College. Nick certain- 
Iv has established himself among the 
greats of the Cheslei 
He now has an aggregate of 1502 and 
with 3 games

Nick took individual honors with

Werpshoski who contributed 27 for 
Moravian's losing game. Kenny Sulli- 
van hit for 14 and Dan Samele 12. 

The Sho'men outscored their oppo- 
nents from the foul line, sinking 20 
cf 30 free throws; the visitors made 
good 18 of 26. 

nd $250 and pocket money up to 
ilOO supplied by Sollazzo both during 
the playing and off season to keep 
them contented, the L.I.U. players re 
ed S18.5O0; the C.G.N.V. youths 
S8,900. The average for players on 
both squads was about $1,000 pei 

Begos was reported to have received 
the largest amount, S7.250. White's 
ihare was 56,250 and Smith's 52,000. 
all this exclusive of money received 
on the side. In addition, Card had 
gotieu 53.000 for ihe "fixes" in the 
three games he played in the 1949-50 

Last ^ears "fixes" included the 

arlh Carolina State game in which 
LI.U. was favoied to win; they lost 
by three; the Cincinnati game; and 
L.I.U.'s first-round game in the Nat'l 
Invitation Tournament. This was won 
by Syracuse. 80-52. 

The (our "fixes" this year included 
the first two games of ihc schedule 
in which L.I.U. beat Kansas State by 
one point and Denver by two. The 
betters had favored it to win both 

icouniers by wide margins. 

The other two were in the Idaho 
game, won by L.I.U. by two points 
and the Bowling Green game hi which 
L.I.U. floundered to a six-point victory. 

It was after the Bowling Green 
game that the players became panicky 
and decided to "(|uit white the (|uit- 
ting was good". They said a letter 
had been written to the school com- 
plaining of their play and it would 
be loo risky to continue the deception. 

JV's Score 
Ninth Win 

Washington College's Junior Varsity 
basketball team scored Ui ninth win 
ot the season at the expense of Bca- 
College of Wilmington. Delaware 
67-54. The game was played as the 
preliminary to the Moravian College 
game Monday night. Feb. 19. 

Topping- the scorers for the Shore- 
men Jayvecs were Elhworih Boyd. 
Doug Tilley, and Bobbie .Applebv 
v»iih 15. 14 and II points respective- 
ly. .Also contributing in the point 
making department were Jim Shatfe 
Wes Edwards and Rod Wjie with 7 
markers each. 

"Big Hank ' Thillips. 6 foot 4 inch 
center for Beaconi, was the top scorer 
of the game with nine field goals and 
three fouls for a total of 21 poiius. 
.Along with his scoring effou. Phillips 
also played a bang-up game off the 

This victory gave the college Jay- 
vees a clean-sweep of the home and 
home series with Beacom. Washington 
won the earlier game plaved at Wil- 
mington G7-J9. 

Babe Johnson's Juniors now sport a 

ison's record of nine wins and two 

losses. Six ol these victories have come 

consecutively since their last defeat at

pericntc in leviewing mvsten' slorics 
lor scleral newspapeis in the South- 
west, suggested that he produce hi^ 
own myster) book. Mr. Downing bc' 
came iniercsicd in the idea, and dur- 
ing the summer wrote a book which, 
however, was not published. 

He returned lo the University of 
Oklahoma and began to write a second 
book, "Murder on Tour", which used 
as its subject matter a touri-it party 
in Mexico. This became his -firsi pub- 
lished work, published by the G. P. 
Putmaii Company, 

His next work, "l he Cat Scream.s", 
became a Crime Club selection of the 
Doublcday Company. John Patrick, 
author of "l he Hasiy Heart" dra 
matiied the stur\. and it ran for a 
week on Broadway. 

■Vultures in the Sky", his third 
work, also was a Crime Club selection, 
and was translated into Spanish 
pubUshed in Duenos Aires. In addi 
lion 10 his nine m^^iery works, Mr 
Downing also has written "The Mexi- 
can Earth." an interpretation ot 
ifexico from a historical viewpoint. 

Currently, he has three projects on 
which he is working. 1 be ncvi book 
to be published is a collection of m\s- 
lerj' stories and fantasy and science 
fiaion stories in Spanish, which he is 
producing wiih a Prolessor at Temple 
University. He has written ihe 'first 
draft of an historical noiel about the 
.Mexican war for independence eni 
"Under the Rose". He is also working 
on another mvstery which he expects

and a Choctaw Indian. He attended 
the Univcrsiiv of Oklahoma and the 
National Uni\crsits o( Mexico, and 
taught for leu year-, from 1925-1935 
at the University nf Oklahoma. He 
sencd on the staff of "Books .Abroad", 
demoted (o foreign literatures, but 
gave this job up to write. For ten 
years he studied and wrote in Mexico 
and learned the A/icc language. Then, 
he ijeni to I'hiladelphia to write adver- 
tising for the N. \V, \>er Company. 
He also acted as consuliani on Latin

until he came to Washington College, 
he taught Spanish at Temple Univer- 
He was aho editor of "I'anameri- 
canismo". a monthly work published 
by the J*an American Association in 

Using himscif as an example, he

Saturday, February 2Uh. However. 
Students will have until five o'clock 
Wednesday evening, Feruary 2Slh to 
make the necewaiy change. Applica- 
tion must be made on the "regular 
form and the necessary signatures .se- 
cured. Furthermore, the signed appli- 
cation must be returned to the Dean's 
office no later thau five o'clock on

This week the Faculty Committee 
on AdmLssions and Scholarship con- 
sidered the case of a student who 
dropped a course, or at leust failed 
lo continue in class, during the fii-sl 
scmestci. The drop slip was not com- 
plcielv filled out and the date was a 
November date, or almost one month 
After the slip should have been handed 
in. The Registrar's olhccr had no al- 
ternative except to assign an F grade 
for the course as having been dropped 
after the close of the first grade period. 
This F grade had a devasting elTcci on 
the student's index, with the request 
from the student for reconsidei-ation. 
The committee agreed (hat the F 
giadc should be removed, but this 
is in no way to he a precedent 
for any fiuure cases. 

tu^ested that all students drop- 
ing courses follow the regular proce 
dure of consulting their advisers, fill 
ing out the proper t<trra and that the 
form be returned to the Dean's offne 
within Ihe stated period. 1 he ad- 
viser and the dean reserve the right to 
ask the student to continue in a clas^

Rasetl on the photographic essay 
and consisting o£ twenty-nine 20' \

eludes many pictures not hitherto pub- 
lished. The forty-four photogiaphs 
which make up this exhibition are the 
result of a three months' trip h\ 
LIFE Photographer tlioi Elisofon. Be 
gmning at the northeast corner of the 
United States, on the rocky 
Maine, Elisofon travelled down along 
the .-Vtlaniic seaboard to the Florida 
Revs. His photographs record tlie 
subtle changes of earth, sky, and

ihiough Georgia to the tropical shores 
of Florida.

ODK Snack Bar Survey 
Indicates Fair Prices 

In 3 recent survey conducted by 
Or.ikron Delta Kappn, listing price? 
£.i eating cstabtishiacnts all ovrr Ches- 
lertown in n-lation to ihc prices in ih'' 
Snark Bnr, figures showed that Snack 
Bar prices compare favorably to those 
prices in other eating places in Chcs- 
tertown. The suivcy was made as 3: 
result of many student gripes of Snack 
Bar prices. 

Restaurants that were covered were 
B.nnett's, Gill's; EddicX Ends and 
Crouch's. These were selected because 
of the great number of students that 
patronise these places as well as the 
Snack Bar. 

The price survey, listed below, was 
given to the Business Office and also 
brought to the attention to the Presi- 
dent's Student ,Advisor>- Committee, 
The ODK Committee making the 
survey was headed by Joe Ingarra 
with Frank Browcr and Larry Wcscott 
as members. 

Comments On SKnuy 

Mr, Dumschotl, Business Manager 
of the College, made tbe following 
statements in rclatron to tte survey. 
"ITie Snack Bar is not iiialiiitg enough 
money TO take jrarc of wcrlicad and 
to allow us to set aside a sum to 
replace worn equipme-Jit. 

""The three possible rcajions for this 
condition may be: (1) Stayint; open 
2t nfght unin 11:00 P.M. (2) the 
price of eolTcc and (3) the !art;c 
amount of ice crcani served on cones. 
Other conditicms may be present which 
arc not apparent at this time," he 

400 Said Per Day 

"An averaijc day's sales slips shows 
ihai there are approximately 400 sales 
ptr day. Each of these amounts, to 
about S.IO to S.I6. The gross ainc 
taktm in does not cover wages, upkeep, 
and the wholirsale price of food 
leave any sum to be used in the fui 
lor new equipment. As it stands nows, 
when the Snack Bar equipmcnl wears 
out the Snack Bar goes. 

Seueifii Solutions Ofjered 

"There /are several alternatives that 
may be taken to relieve this problem 
One would be to close the Snack Bar 
at night when business is slack and 
keep prices as they stand. Another 
would be to raise prices. 

"^Al present, no changes arc to be 
made. However, if there is a need for 
change, it will be the result of careful 
study and long deliberation," Mr. 
Dumschoot concluded. 

No Rent For Snack Bar 

It was noted, however, by the ODK 
commillce, that the Snack Bar under- 
sells other esiablishnunis on only three 
Items: egg sandwich, toast, and cof- 
fee. It was also pointed out by a 
member of the Student Advisory Com- 
mittee that the Snack Bar docs not 
have to pay rent.

\ meeting of all students interested 
in medical schools was held on Tues- 
day morning to outline the proposed 
program loi the recommendation of 
students lo medical schoob. Under 
the new program each student will be 
expected to complete certain courses in 
the Natural Sciences with a B average 
plus certain oihcr prescribed courses 
in the Huntauities and the Social 
Studies. .\ cumultivc index of 2.00 oi

"B" average is assumed as minimum 
requirement, .Some univereilics have a 
spcdai requirement, such as the Medi-

Mounts Defeat W. C. In Cage Finale 



The curtain lul^ falk-n on another basketball siason. and 
uniforms and t-quipmcnt will soon be packed in mothballs. 
Usually, soon after the last basketball game has been played, 
baseball takes the spotlight as daily practices get under way, 
and all anxiously await the cry to "Play Ball". There will be 
no baseball games this year, however, and to this writer and 
many other diamond-followers — "Well, it just won't seem 
like spring." 

Loyola Jinx 

The Loyola baskcteers continued to hold a "jinx" over the 
Sho'men, squeezing out a 59-57 victory a week ago at the 
armory. (See write-up elsewhere on this page.) 

The last three games ftere enough to make any coach grey; 
Loyola, American U., and Mt. St. Mary's in a row. The Eagles 
dished out the moM humiliating spanking of the campaign, 
98-53, while the Mounts helped the locals close shop widi a 
73-67 thrashing. 

Short Shots 

The tennis team will soon don their shorts and swing into 
practice — that is, when the courts are put in shape for them. 
No games have yet been scheduled for fear that the courts will , 
not be ready. Holdovers from last years' squad include Gary 
WyckoH", Bill Brandt, and co-captain Bruce WyckoR' and Jack 
Smitli. Bill Murray also stands ready to step on the firing line. 

Glancing through »the records of the M-D Basketball 
Tournaments we find that Loyola has taken the crown four 
times during the last decade; 1942, 47. 48, and 49; followed 
closely by American U. who has captured it three times, 1945, 
46. 50. Western Maryland took high honors in '41. Mt. St. 
Mary's in '44 and, don't look now, but in '43 it was Gallaudet 
winning over Delaware. 

The current play-offs got imder way yesterday at Catholic 
University with American U. tackling the Mounts In the

lack of self<onfidcncc has caused many 
potential winners to fall in defeat in-

arc wondering what qualities a run-

in this sport?

Is Popular 
Banquet Site 

As much a part of Washington Col- 
lege as bluebooks. the Snack Bar, and 
spring fever, is a rustic waterfronl 
building tha( succeeds successfully in 
satisfying the appetite of W.C, ban- 
quet goers wi(h tantalizing food. This 
itruciure^ better known to all as ""I he 
jranary" looks out over a peaceful 
harbor on (he Sassafras River and ihe 
breeze from (he river sends the odors 
of steaks and seaf6od drifdng up (he 
entrance road letnpting (he patrons- 
to-be to "step on the g;is" just a, little 
harder. "Fhc Granary" was former- 
ly just what the name implies. 7'he 
quaint stalls, where there are now 
pine tables and large windows looking 
out over the river, were once bins to 
bold grain lo be shipped down the 
bay. The great oak rafters, hand hewn 
here in Maryland, bolster a building 
meant to be .sturdy and able to with 
stand all kinds of weather. 

With Ihis rustic atmosphere, the 
addition of modern conveniences 
which includes a a-iure blue powder 
n and a giant kitchen, the old gran- 
was made over into an elite place 
to eat. Started in the IJMO's, it imme- 
diately began attracting customers lo 
Is fme name in food and pleasant at- 

AVith this vcputa(ton in mind, Wash- 
ington College clubs began planning 
banquets that were to take place at the 
Granary. Siudcnts lined up cars, oidev- 
ed from twenty-to-thirty steak or tur- 
key dinners and proceeded to have a 
bang-up parly from soup to nuis and 
with the inevitable after-dinner talks. 
It is with Granary food under their 
belts (hat many student and faculty 
groups decide policies and programs for 

ashingion College. 

Perhaps (he busiest time for the 
Granary in relation to W.C. is in the 
pring when the sororities, fra(ctnities 
and clubs have ihcir final banquet lor 
the year. An outsider, dining ihcre'dur- 
ing one of these affairs would enjoy the 
singing of fraternity and sorority sougs, 
the Oscar awards made to the Players 
for (he best performance and the sum- 
ies of the year's activities by doitcns 
of campus organizations. 

Il has been said over and over that 
"The way to a man's heart is through 
his stomach" and so it seems the way 
to gei down to business on such weigh- 
ty problems as the Senior Class Con- 
stitution, Student Government, and 
good fraternity practices is lo give 
the members of these organizations a 
good meal. 

Much has been said about the Cran- 
.iry for banquets, but when that cxlra 
bit of allowance comes in or Ihcvc is 
a birthday or anniversai-y lo be cele- 
bra(ed you can be pretty sure (hat 
treat will be ai the rustic resipurani 
in Georgetown, Maryland, ovcrlool ing 
(he Sassafras River.

American U. Captures M-D Tourney 


By Ellsworth Boyd 

Track Team 
Returns Ten 

"Clear right! CJierk .sticks! Man on the crease!" These arc the 
sounds which echo from the lacrosse fieid as Coach Charlie Clark 
puts his fiery squad through their paces in preparation for their 
scrimage with Maryland and the fust game of the season against 
The Naval Academy. This group is being moulded into a well 
balanced unit and if Washington College doesn't have the best team 
since its inception of lacrossi-, we feel that it will at least be the best 
conditioned outfit. 

I'npredictablc Campaign 

Although the cindermen have just begun to climb the ladder 
of conditioning, the squad's two mainstays, "The Jet" and "Captain 
Jim" have been running true to form. Those EASY jOO's and 660*s 
are proof enough that Washington's opponents will face grim oppo- 
sition in the sprints and middle distance events. However, lack of 
depth is the problem which remains to be solved by Dim and Ed. 
The 1950 record of 4 wins and 1 loss in dual meets plus the M-D 
Championship, will be difficult to repeat against such adversaries as ' ' 
West Chester, Catholic U. and Loyola College. 

The Bull Pen 

It seems like Al. "The Eye" Zaioskihad a pretty hot day against 
Foxwell last week. Thirty-five points worth to be axact; This estab- 
lishes a new intramural record for the season, the old one of 34 
having belonged to Smitty Byham. 

It was quite a hotly contested duel, when BillMurray and 
Bnicc WycofT raced that half-mile at tennis practice. But "The 
Bird Man" came through as he flew across the finish line with five 
yards to spare. 

Big Smitty and Bill Brandt have also been devoting much time 
recently in preparation for their first tennis match in April. It 
couldn't be that Bill is trying to run olT his nickname — could it 

During the past ihree weeks, coaches 
Ed Athcy and Dim Munieru haw 
been taking n iiienciil survey of pros- 
pective track and (icid candiduies in 
prepanition for their inaugttr^il meet 
.Vpiil II wiih Catholic Iniversiiy.

which ihis year's squad must be Imilt.

Strong Aggregation 

This time last year, the AVashing- 
Itm College tennij. coiirts were a scT 
of iHud due to the building of Somer- 
set House, and the ardent tennis hope- 
fuls were quite discouraged for fcav 
the playing grounds (umld never 
shape up for tliuir initial contest. 
However, the racket stpiad was intpet 
when its courts were rolled and the 
boys emerged with a 5 won^ J lost 
record to climax a successful ycat. 

Two of their four losses weic at 
the hands of Caihoiic U. and Loyola 
College who nnished onc-iwu in the 
conference' On the other hand, the 
netmen were victori{)Us over Johns 
Hopkins antl Baltimore L'- twice and 
defeated Towson State Tcathcvs Col- 

Reluming from last year's team arc 

Cary ^Vycoff, Bijl Brandt and co-cap- 
tains Bruce Wycoff and Jack Smith. 
Jack turned in a tnpnoich SI record 
last year, followed by the WycoH 
'brothers 5-1 and Bill Brandt at Ti-t. 
The doubles team, composed of 
Bruce and "Biscuits" )vere defeated 
tmly once in nine outings. Consiani 
rain and the poor condition of tile 
courts greatly hindered the racketeers 
last seastm,' however, these veterans 
have been conditioning themselves 
daily and will be prepaitd to swing 
into action, conic April lOth when 
the playing grounds arc to be a\ail- 
able. The addition <if Bill Minrav, 
John Minnick, and Bob Stall will add 
depth to the team, which looks for- 
ward tu another sutcessiul campaign. 

A Family Affair 

This past baskeibalJ , season intro- 
duced a new scoring star here at Wash- 
ington College. Upon his arriviil here 
on the Eastern Shore, Danny Saniele 
was virtually unknown. However, the 
little fellow remained in this category 
until basketball season rolled around, 
and a new star was soi.n burn on the 
W.C. can*pas. 

Almost over night, Ihrnti), and his 
deadly set shot, weie the lutnidt ot 
baskeil»all conversation. I o many of 
the "old-timci-s" on campu-., this seem- 
ed to recall anoiFier SjuicIc li) mind. 
Referring to the record books, we 
find that there was anotfier Samele, 
Frank by name, who entered the 
Washington canijitw ten yean ago. 
Whcii baskethalf tryouis began, this 
ifitninitivc b'H" fireball was on hand, 
Possevsing a great deal of speed and 
an accurate set shot. Frank was able 
lo Incik into tlie first string lineup. 
ConcliHling his first yc.iv as a Slio'inaii, 
"Pep", xts his teammates nicknamed 
him, was the team's second high 

Ill his sophomore and junior yean, 
Frank Samele led the .Mason-Dixon 
Conference in Koring and through 

lon^tant imjtrotement was named to 
the .\ll-\faryland teams of \W1 aiid 

After serving with I nde Sam for 
three years, I'ep leiuvned to his posi- 
tion at forward for coach Dumschott's 
"Flying Pentagon". In his"scnior year. 
I'ep attained his highest season total 
(347) for a l"i.l per game average. 

Yes, all these vivid memories weie 
recollected when we saw Danny 
Siunelc i% action this year. Like his 
big brother. Danny broke into coach 
Athcy's starting Cittint and as a result 
emerged secimd high scorer for his 
lirst year on Ihe campus. He also 
'retains his hrothcv's style, that of a 
deadly sei shot. Just as Frank was nick- 
] named "I'cp", due lo his spunk and 
hustle, .so ^vas Danny tabbed with the 
tillc of "Swish", due to liLs beautifully 
executed sets. 

.■VcconUng to this year's record books, 
".Swish" eclipsed his elder's first year 
scoring mark by M points. If this is 
any indication of things to come, 
basketball histoiy may again be writ- 
ten by a Saniele at Washington Col- 
lege, for it seciiu the hardwooti .sport 
has become, ".\ Family .Affair."

League Ends 

It's all over but the shouting now, 
for the intramural basketball league 
schedules only a few more games. 
One team has hnisbed the regular sea- 
son and most of the othei^s have only 
one game left. Theia Chi. the New 
man Cliih, \\'est Hall, and Kappa 
.Mpha arc the teams that will face 
each other in the plajolfs. 

Thcta Chi Continues -To Win 

The action ol last week set off with 
a bang as Theia Chi. led by Johnny 
Coxand Kenny Howard, who hit for 
20 and 17 points respectively, trounced 
G.l. Hall 55-21. The following after- 
(.loon the Day Students overcame 
AONu 37-24 as Jim Ha.ebel ripped the 
cords for 13 points white George Horn 
scoretl 10 for the losei"i. 

The next evening the Day Students 
again played, bin thi^ time they were 
edged by an eager Foxwell squad 
27-23. Mulvaney led both teams in 
scoring as he netted 7 markers for the 
losers. In a game between two ot the 
top four teams. West Hall turned 
in a 37-2.1 victory over the Newman 
Club. Coijper DeLoach was high man 
with 12 points, while "Viuny - Mag 
liocheiii totaled 10, ' 

Zaioski Nets 35 Points 

The next day K.\ ran away from 
Foxwell in a high scoring duel. .M 
Zaioski led the way to the 67-34 
win by ripping the net,s for a sur- 
pri.siiig 35 points. In the next con- 
test Foxwell wai defeated as Cooper

out its third lyeck of training,

good weather. 

At this point, it appears that it will 
be dilhculi for the returning reserves 
or newcomers to oust (irst-siringers of 
last year where the latter aie available. 
The position of goal, vacated by last 
year's captain, Price Ransome, and 
I Bill Tom. is as yet unfilled. The most 
i experienced goalie on the squad, Bob 
' Jackson, has played on defense lor 
two years and Coach Clark is reluct- 
ant to change his position unless aliso 
luicly necessary. Every opportunity is 
being given Bill Russell, third-string 
goalie of last year, to earn a starting

and the students were griping through 
the editorial channels of the Elm. 
Seems that they had to study day-by- 
day instead of raonth-by-month. 

The stacks of Bunting Libiary were 
closed for reasons which were not dis- 
closed, and Ihc students wanted them 
reopened. The Diiecior of the Lib 
rary itaied thai when a ^indent wished 
to u-e the stacks, he might request a 
permission card, and from the slight 
demand for these, there seemed to be 
little inconvenience to anyone.

Following an an noun cc men ( made 
several weeks ago hy Frederick W. 
Dum<^rho(t slating the financial status 
of the Snack Itai, (he eating habitat 
of Washington Ci>llcgc students began 
closing its diK>rj at 5:00 I'.M. last 
^fond3y instead of the usual 11i)0 
P.M. Tljis action, ordered ljy Mr. 
Dkimsfhott 15 being tried as a method 
to save money lor the Snack Bar 
which has been reportedly losing 
money since last September. 

The reason giver. lor the early 
closing was that the amount of sales 
carried on in the evening did noi 
cover operadng costs (or that period. 
In order to keep from raising prices 
lo make up the difference, the work- 
ing hours in the Bar were cut. 

The Snack Bar situation was brought 
to the attention of the students by 
(he publishing in the Flm of a survey 
<m food prices made by ODK. It was 
also brought to the attention oE the 
student advisory committee. 

In a statement to the Elm o)ncem- 
ir.g the survey Mr. Dumschott men- 
tioned the possibility of closing the 
Snack Bar as one of the alternatives 
to be taken in order to economize. 
Tlie other attirnaiive was a raise in 
prices, panicularly on coffee and ice 
cream which were thought to be pos- 
sible money losers, ^ 

It was noted however by the ODK 
committee thai the Snack Bar under-

Art Club 
Plans Exhibit 

The An Club of Washington Col-

arc late in April, it was announced 
by Dr. Voclkcr today. The exact date 
will be announced later. Any student, 
whether a member or not, may take 
pan in this evhibiiion. which is an all- 
campus adivity. 

The exhibition will consist of waici 
colors, oils, pencil, pastels, charcoals, 
pen and ink, cartoons, carving, photo- 
graphy, model making, needlework, 
leather work, crafts, clay modeling and 
ceramics, and oilier artistic hobbies 
of ihc students. 

One objective of this evhihition is lo 
ascertain what interest there is in art 
among Washington College students. 
This will be used in deciding what 
sort of arc courses the college might 
offer. Dr. VoelktT believes that there 
is a possibility that art might become 
a major department at Washington

Sunday Movies 
Ruled Out 

The plan of the Mt. Vernon Literary 
Society to sponsor Sunday movies on 
the campus has not met with the 
necessary approval, it was revealed this 
week by Vince Magtiochctti, former 
President of the Society. 

In a letter dated February 27 and 
released for publication this week by 
the Society, Dr. Charles B. Clark, in 
Charge of Studeiu .Vcth itic*. staled 
the reasons for the failure to approve 
the plan. In brief, it was felt that the 
movies would conflict with the sche- 
dule of Ihe local ctiurches and, in 
addition, would interfere with students 
preparing for classes Monday. (See text 
of letter on page 4).

Gives Science 

A liqbid air iIcmoiTitration present- 
ed by Mr, John Sloan, a graduate ol 
Duke University was sponsoied by the l 
Science Club for the assembly pnigram | 
on Thursday. A former science teach- 
er, Mr, Sloan has performed over five ] 
thousand demonstrations to high [ 
school and coUtJge students in forty- 
two states. 

In a series of experiments, Mr 
Sloan presented the peculiar proper- 
ties of liquid air. Made by subjecting 
air to high pressure and lowering its 
temperature, pale blue liquid air has 
I a temperature of 321 degrees F. below 
liiero. To show the effect of subjecting 
'other materials to this low icmpcr^t- 
ture, Mr, Sloan immersed various 
solids in the liquid air. In this way, 
he made a banana hard enough to 
drive nails, a rubber ball that would 
break like glass, and a piece of iron 
that could be broken with the hands. 
Demonstrating liquid air's expansive 
force as it changes to a gas. ^tr. Sloan 
inflated a balloon by attaching it to 
a test tube of liquid air, and played 
a clarinet by performing a similai 

Combustion experiments were also 
presented, made possible as Mr. Sloan 
explained by the fact that as liquid 
air evaporates, almost pure liquid 
oxygen is obtained. A steel wire burn- 
ed when placed into the liquid. 

Debate Team 


All Dialc uludenis 
arc requested lo meet in (he 
auditorium, Tuesday, April 10, 
at 11:15.

Washington College in a recent lour ol 
debates with Pennsylvania College 
I'niversiiy teams, were successful in 
winning three out of four of the 
ilcbaies that were dccisioncd. The 
team debated a total of twelve times 
although eight of the debates were 
not decisioned. 

Representing the negative tor Wash- 
ingion were Fred Nixon and Paid 
Miller. Bill Treuih and Charles Whitt- 
siti prescnteci the affirmative view 
point. "I he topic debated was this 
year's national college debate topic;

1 hose teams debated in the itincrarv 
were I'rsinus, University of Pennsyl 
vinia, Haverford, r-jmple, Swarthmore, 
and St. John's College. There v 
two debates at each school nitli the 
exception of 1 emple and Ursinus. The 
.Alhrmaiive team debated the topic 
with Temple's squad, while the nega- 
tive argued the question with the 
negative team of Ursinus. 

Those teams which the Washington 
team defeated were the University of 
Pennsylvania, Haverford, and Temple. 
The team sustained a loss at Swarth- 
morc. \\\ the other verbal jousts were 
undecisioncd affairs.

Ability Counts 

Prcsitlcnt lasi Saturday or- 
dered draft defcriiient for college 
students on the basis of their scholas- 
til ability. Later iTiis week, selective 
General Lewis B. Hershcy, selective 
sciviee director, sent to all draft lioards 
the complete procedure for taking ap- 
titude tests to determine student abi- 
lity to attend college. Over 1,000 
placcN were listed where examinations 
will be held and thirty sample ques- 

ins were released to let students 

low what ih'.y could expect. Tests 

11 be administered at Wanhington 
College May 211, June Irt and June 30. 

College students were advised to get 
in touch with their local boards im- 
mediately and obtain Selective Ser- 
vice Forms lOG and 107. These actual- 
ly arc 1-cent post cards attached to 
each other. 

The student can indicate the date 
on which he would like to take the 
test and Ihe place. Alter the form 
is filled out, the registrant mu^jt mail 
it to the Selective Service e)^aiiiiaiDg 

Ihe Educational Testing Service of 
Princeton, N.J., then will assign (ht 
date and place where a student will 
take the test and return halt of the 
card to the registrant. He mu.« take 
the card with him when he takes the 
test. The service will follow the stu- 
dent's wishes as far as possible ob 
time and pUcc for the test. 

Each applicant will be fingerprint- 
ed to make sure that only authorized 
persons take the test, which will be 
in the form of multiple-choice ques- 
tions. Anyone caught cheating will be 
dismissed from the examination imme- 

the tests will include mathematical 
problems and the reading of passages, 
charts and tables to sec how studcnifi 
apply general principles. They are 
designed to determine ability to learn 
rather than actual knowledge. 

The test is aimed at providing for 
the deferment of enough promising 
students to give the nation all the 
trained scientists, technicians and pro- 
fessional men it needs. Only men al- 
ready in college will be permitted to 
lake it. s 

Other eligibility rules for test appli- 
cants are as follows: 

1. The applicant must intend to seek 
occupational defcrmcni as a student. 

2. He must be under 26 years old. 
(The draft age limit). 

3. The applicant must not have pre- 
viously taken the test.' 

No cost will be involved ^;xtcpi the 
applicant's transportation costs to and 
from the examination center. 

The action was taken in recognition 
of Ihe tact that the United States can- 
not hope to match Soviet Russia and 
her satellites in manpower but must 
rather place its prime reliance io 
.\merican scientific and technical sup- 

General Hcrshey noted that Con- 
fess had provided tor deferments ol 
college and univervity students "in 
such numbers as may be necossary lo 
the maintenance of ihe nation^ 
health, safety, or interest." 

By cxiniiive order. .>Ir. Truman de- 
fined a student as necessary to nalionaJ 
liealtb_ safety or interest if he falh 
tne of the three following cate- 

1. A student (or a man accepted for

By Tom Lowe table 

Ha\ing created shells like armadil- 
■ , we arc pecnliarily unaware of the 
pressure applied indirectly on every 
one of tis. Some poor sensitive souls, 
whose skin just will not callous, in- 
terpret these coercions as if they have 
been singled out to be purged by the 
student body. Such is the plight of 
sensiti^e individualists. .Actually, 
c\cryonc gets the same ireatraent — 
and 1 use the word in all its mean- 
ngs — but after a few years here, this 
high pressuring of ideas goes off of 
our backs like water from a duck's. 

It is typically provincial in America 
to attempt to jam ideas down others' 
hroais — as the prohibitionists did 
u the twenties an.l the puritans have 
done in the past with blue laws. Our 
policies never have been developed to 
an art. U'c aic si> used to the "longh 
skins" we try to penetrate with 
"needles". Once we have penetrated 
we rip the weakened spot leaving ire- 
mendoits scars which, incidentally, 
ser^e to act as armor for later attacks. 
.■V weak willed person (heaven help 
him!) who comes lo W'.C. has three 
choices. Either he develops a "tough 
skin", conforms or leav es a raving 

In a more serious vein this isn't 
particularly good. In that Jl develops 
our strength of wills — yes. but think 
of tho>e whose nature it is to mimic. 
.\nvonc, for instance, who wear^ a 
coat and tie to supper, or attempts to 
retain any semblance of conventional 

: regarded (v:th com- 
plete bewilderment. Occasions upon 
which the alunuil return call automa- 
tically for the students to get sloppy 
drunk so that we're able to impress 
them with what "big boys" we are. 

This situation, of course, was 
brought about by the past adminis- 
trations. They must reaUie by now 
that the quickest way to bring on a 
situation is to completely outlaw it. 
However, if they had looked at the 
terms "temperance" as "moderation", 
by now the students would have learn- 
ed that a man is not measured by 
"how much" he can drink but simply 

Let's think tor a moment what all 
this can mean lo some young high 
school chap lliai has been babied all 
his life — he may have the strength 
to withstand and be better for it. 
Nine times out of ten he will fall in 
line as a typical freshman is expected 
to and become a prototype of some 
idol on the campus. 

.And let's not feel ttx) sure of our 
own selves. We're going to walk out 
ot here witty^ caustic and a little 
cynical perhaps aud some prospective 
employer is going lo jam that degree 
in our saucy little mouths. We're 
dragging oursChes into that fantasy 
that we are superiors as individuals 
in spite of and not because of W.C. 
I'erhaps tve'd better give a little of the 
individual enthusiasm over to a col- 
lective spirit and boost the school a 
bit instead of ourselves.

Stickmen Bow To Middies -MeetHofstra Today 


By Ellsworth Boyd 

Sho' Stick Team Praised 
Although the Maroon and Black was defeated by Na\7 ir 
initial outing of the '51 lacrosse season, it is tlie opinion of veteran 
stickmen that the Chestertown squad should remain victorious 
throughout the remainder of their campaign, Navy's assistant roach, 
jcAm Donohuc, labels the Eastern Shoremen as the best small college 
team since the cliampoinship days of St. Johns (when he played, and 
"Nav>''s Dinty Moore coached) . 

B.O.C. Boasts Hubbard 

Many track fans will recognize a former alumnus and eminei 
track star at Washington College this year when The Baltimore 
Olympic Club once again visits the Shore for a dual track and field 
encounter. Although we would rather have him with us than against 
us, it looks as if Mickey Hubbard will be one of the Baltimore Club's 
mainstays and a reliable point-maker as he was at \Vashington Col- 
lege last year. 

Racketeers Tuning Up 

The tennis ranks within the M-D Conference Iiavc depleted 
with the amiouncement that The University of Baltimore and Mt. 
St. Mair/s will not field teams this year. Howe\'er, our racketeers 
have been practicing daily in the gym until their outdoor courts are 
erected. The schedule is not yet complete, nevertheless, matches have 
been sfated with Catholic U., Towson, Western Maryland and Johns 

This An' That 

Ai Doory, cx-Washington College student now attending Balto. 
v., was one of five Y.M.C.A. wrestlers who grappled Ichiro Hatta's 
louring team of Japanese champions in an e?diibition event at the 
Baltiraore "Y" last Friday — At the M-D Conference meeting last 
week, it was decided to pick an all conference basketball team in 
1952 instead of the usual all tourney live — The W.C. lacrosse squad 
threw a scare into Navy coach Dinty Moore bc-fore the initial game 
of the seas€»i. "1 heard about that scrimmage Washington had with 
Mar^'IaTid and that's reason enough to be concerned over our game", 
exclaimed' coach Moore - — Out of the group of 30 who reported for 
track practice several weeks ago, only half have been attending daily 
workouts. Those gym classes must be getting pretty rough if students 
have ta dra%v equipment and supposedly go out for a sport in order 
lo eliminate g>Tn from their schedules ! ! ! 

Win Game 

As'.a pveludc lo our Spring Holidays, 
(he hardwood c'UJnlct comijoaed of 
Marjlaii-d residi;n!s defeated ihc oiii- 
of-scate squad, til-j.'i in a fast break 
ing wide open h.iW game which was 
decidcly marked by personal folds, 

The in siateis floored a starling 
five consisting of Mel Morgan, Ells 
fionh Boyd, Ken Hoiyard, Ed Cini 
ning and Bernic Kudo which was pit- 
ted against the entire Jim string var- 
•ity, led by '■Coach" Nick Scallion. 
Morgan Stan 

The victors were led by Mel Morgan 
who bucketed five field goah and seven 
[outs for a 17 point total. Siibstitu- 
(ing freely, the loicis were headed by 
Nifty Nick and Lee Cook who netted 
I6 and 11 markeri; respectively. The 
first quarter teiininaicd with the 
Marylanders holding a slim 3 point 
edge as Morg:m continually scored on 
hU diincLilt drive-in shots. The out- 
tet of the second period brought the 
Md. "shock triKjps" into the contest. 


the vi 


s lead dwindled and as 











The 3rd 


iza was 

nip and 


battle as the ball continually changed 
hands. Referees Ed Ciiigalia and Bill 
Russell allowed very few fouls to slip 
past them ai '3 were called during 
the evening. Kenney Howard aggies- 
sively stole the ball during crucial 
phases of the skirmish and fed to the 
big guns, Morgan and Johnson, en- 
abling the victors to secure a five 
piont lead entering the last quarter. 


1 he addition of a dual meet with 
The Baltimore Olvmpic Club hjJ in 
creased the 19JI track schedule to a 
tot^l of four dual meets, two champ- 
ionships, and the Penn Relays. This 
is one of the roughest slates that any 
cinder squad has faced in the past, 
and promises plentiful competition in 
cry track and field event. 
The defending Mason. Dixon Champ- 
ions open their new campaign Saiur 
day, April 14, when they will match 
strides with the Cardinals of CathoUt 
University who are sparked by ihcii 
record-breaking high jumper, Russ 
Johnson. Last year the Maroon and 
Black trimmed the Cardinals 81 to 
40, as seven records were smashed. 
This year however, the Red Birds will 
out to avenge ihij defeat, 
Mlddk-Atlanlic Relay 
.\pril 13 pits the Sbo-men agaiijst 
Pennsylvania , Military College and 
.\pril 21 The Baltimore Olympic 
Club invades the ^hore. Both squadi 
fere easily taken in hand last )ear, 
jut the former shows promise of a 
ttonger group this season, while 
i.O.C. is .quite unprediciahle. 

The Penn Relays fall on the 28th of 
his month in which W.C. will entei 
>ut one, one mile relay. This will be 
the Middle Atlantic Confeience inile 
relay representing such adversaries as | 
Lafayette, St. Josephs. Lehigh. Muh-j

Athey At Meeting 

No startling det':lopnienis came out 
of the inlttigural session of the .Mason- 
Dixon Conference's annual spring 
IG meeting last Saiit.'day and Sunday at 
thi; Emerson H jtcl in Baltin^orc, htiw- 
evei, several recommendations were ad 
vanced by repte;entaiivcs of the lit 
M-D schools. 

Edward L. .-\they, athletic director of 
Washington College is vice president ul

conimitice on lacroue. Emil C>. Rein.

After the two semi-hnal garner and 
one championship game the red and 
white of Theta Chi twice emerged 
victoriouij to win the intramural bas- 
ketball title, Thu Chi, beaten in the 
firal* last year by G.I. Hall simply 
ran the opposi:ion into the grOund 
with a high scoring offense and an 
effective full court pres-s. 

In the first semi-final game the 
eventual champs readily beat KA 
47-28. With johnny Cox hitting for 
23 points, mostly set shotj, KA trailed 
all the way. Al Zaloski had an off day 
bu[' waj good enough to lead his team 
and bucket ten. \fier the Hrst quart- 
er K \ had litllo chance to produce 
an offense, for the Theia quint dis- 
played a full court press led by speedy 
Kenny Howard and alert Jack Nacidii 
Meanwhile, the victors showed the 
finest ball handling seen this year 
among the afteru'on cagers and easily 
cracked the ineffectual K.\ zone. " 
West Hall In Finals 
Then West Hall took the court and 
tripped the Newman Club by a 38-33 
score. \Vest Hall, boasting the -tallest 
club in the circuit, had five technicals 
called against it. but sparked by rangy 
Neil lilghman they had little trouble 
in netting the victory. However, twice 
the Newman Club pulled within ont 
point of the winners, ITi-U and 32-31 
but each time Tilghman bucketed s 
hook shot to put a margin between the 
quiiuets. With Tilghman scoring 12 
points in the pivot and DeLoacli. 
Kreiger and Bonsack working from 
the outside, their scoring punch was 
versatile, while Vinny Magliochetti al- 
most singly led the Newman Club 
with II points. 

Theia Wms 53-35 
In the final, Theta Chi coasted to 
an easy 53-36 victory. ,\n evenly dis- 
tributed scoring punch seemed to will 
West Hall. Ed Cinaglia ted the win- 
ners with IG points. Jack Nacrelli and 
speedster Kenny Howard were next 
with 9 and 8, as every man on the 
Theta club ripped the cords. Neil 
Tilghman, figured to be the main 
West Hall threat, lived up to prej 
game prediction, with 18 points. How- 
ever, only Jim Kreiger was' able to 
hit from the outside while 1 heta Chi 
scored from every angle. 

Again using a full court press and 
fast break. Theta had little trouble 
in tiring the five man West Hall 
quint. The colsest the losers came was 
six points at the 'jnJ ol the first quart 
cr. Possession of the ball was the 
Theta Chi rule as they romped up 
and down the court, repeatedly steal- 
ing the sphere. With a late scoring 
drive widening the margin, the Ox- 
Men Iwcamc the intro-mural champ- 
ions with their J5-36 win. 

Score 8-6 

the awards and trophies committee. 
.Vthey announied that Washington 
College will have a tennij squad al 
th"Ugh Ml. St. Mary's and Baltimore 
Un. have bqwed out. 

Last week marked the opening of 
the 1951 lacrosse campaign for Wash- 
ington College as they were overcome 
by the Naval .Academy at Annapolis, 

The Middies wasted no time as they 
jumped to an early 20 lead in the 
first quarter, .\fter Navy Captain Chct 
McDonougb fired two into the net. 
the Sho'men matched the Middies goal 
tor goal. The score stood at 4-0 before 
the Itnal lads could find the range in 
the second quarter. 

Grim Breaiu Ice 

Washington's scoring was opened by 
John Grim on .i ricochet shot midway 
in the second stanza. Graeme Menziei 
followed shortly with another and the 
half time score stood at 4-2. with the 
Middies in front. 

Early in the second half, the Ches- 
tertown stickmen changed the score- 
board to read 4-3 on a fine shot by 
Rip Wood. However, Bob Burch coun. 
tered for the sailors and Dick Wright 
added another to lengthen the lead 
to three goalj. Lacry Leonard flipped 
one in from the side as the third 
quarter ended. 

The foufih frame saw the Sho'men 
out play the Middies for the first time 
the game, They again closed the, 
gap on a shot by Meniies but Mc- 
Donogh and Billy Earl penetrated for 
numbers seven and eight for Navy, 
Wood firtd iir the final taHy of the 
game' with less than a minute to play, 

"1 he Middies, with free substitution, 
ore down Sho'men Coach Charlie 
Clai'k's unit. The local lads showed 
good slickwork and accurate passes 
but were overcome by Navy's reserve 

Sho'cQcn ^leei Holstia 

Today, the team travels north to 

ect the Hofstra ten. Under the lead- 
ership of former AllAmerican from 
Johns Hopkins. Llnvd Bunting, Hof- 
should be welt skilled in the fun- 
damentals o{ the game. 

rcording to Howdy Myers, former 
Hopkins lacrosse coach and present 
athletic director at Hofsira, the team 
is a little shallow in reserves, but 
have plentv of finesse and hustle.

Feb. 27, 19.11 
Miss Janet Newman, Secretary 
Ml. Vernon Literary Society 
Washington College 
Chcsieriown, Maryland. 
Dear Janet: 

The request of the Mt. Vernon 
Literary Society to hold movies 
Sunday evenings has been given care- 
lul consideration. It is our belief 
that Sunday evening is not a good 
evening for this activity, based upon 
these considerations: 
■ (1) ChesieriowTi churches would 
have a just complaint inasmuch as the 
hours would conflict. Whether 
dents would be going to church o 
is in a sense beside the point, for the 
churches would still (ccl justified in 
making the compl; 

(2) It is our feeling that students, 
manv of them returning to the campus 
on Sunday evening from a week end 
away, should be interested in prepar- 
ing for their classes the next day. As 
far as possible, we do not desire to 
have any aaivity interfere with classes 1 
We will be perfectly agreeable to | 
the idea of your attempting these 
movies on clear Friday evenings. We 
have some doubts alKiui them on the 
basis of past experience. The Movie 
Guild, under the leadership especially 
of Lennv Krassner, operated here for 
a couple of yeai-s in rather a spasmodic 
way. They were allowed to hold 
movies on Fridays when there were nn 
dances, games, etc. Whether they made 
any money I cannot say ofFhand. II 
vou want to try (hem. alright. Check 
dales with me to avoid conflicts. We 
assume you would want to use the 
Auditorium. Wc would want to be 
fully taiisfied thai no smoking would 
be allowed in there because of ih« 
danger invoUed with exposed film. 
This was a sore point when ihc Movie 
Guild was operating. 

I will be glad to talk with you or 
anyone connected with the Society 
about this matter at any time. 
Sincerely yours, 
Charge, Student Activitcs.

class, yet to be announced. However, 
a Selective Service oflicial said thai a 
plan proposed by General Hcrshcy 
several weeks ago will probably be 
used at first. 

At that time, Hershcy suggested thai 
all college freshmen in the upper half 
of their class be deferred, all second 
year students in the upper two thirds, 
and all third year men in the upper 
three fourths of their class. 
! The passing score will probably be 
.withheld by Selective Service head- 
I quarters for several weeks. Earlier this 
th General Hcn.hey called for a 
passing mark of 70 based on a perfeci 
score of 100 in proposing a similar 
plan. Officials, however, would noi 
say this will be the new passing level

ODK To Run Snack Bar At Night 

Faculty Show 
Slated For 

A turn-about from [lie ordinary 
course (or college events occui-s next 
week when the faculty will eniciiain 
[he siudcnls in a Variety Show on 
Uednesday, April 18. 1951 at 8:30 
P.M. 1 ickcts are on sale ai fiEty cents 
a person, and all proceeds arc tor 
Ihe benefit ol the World Student 
Service Fund. 

The cast lor the production includes 
(acuity members of all dcparlnicnis 
and the clfrical department. Mu 
and humor will be featured as the 
main (are of the evening's show. Jokes I 
will be specialized, with particular 
emphasis on coramcniarics concerning 
Washington College life. Individual 
acts revealed for publication include 
two song and dance aci.s, a barber 
shop quartet, a dramatic sketch, and 
two satiric parodies on college life. 

Rehearsals arc progressing behind 
closed doors, and the faculty remains 
reticent about the details of the pre- 
ieniation. Not until Wednesday even- 
ing will the students learn what the 
(acuity has planned. 

The business and technical proper- 
ties o( production are being handled 
by students in a special committee (or 
Ihe World Student Service Fund, under 
the chairmanship ol Elinor Custafson. 
Mr. Edward Brubaker is chairman of , 
the iaculty group. Tickets for the 
Variety Show can be purchased from 
any member of the committee (or the 

Five Professors 

Receive Promotions 

As a result o( action taken by the 
Board of Visitors and Governors here 
last Saturday, Bve members of the 
faculty received promotions (rom the 
rank of Asis.stani Pro(essor to that of 
Associate Professor. Those affected by 
(be action include: Dr. Lawrence Ford 
of the Language Department; Dr. 
Joseph McLain of Chemistry; Dean 
Bradley' of English; Mr.- Bennett of 
-Mathemaiics; and Mr. Dumschoit nf 
Pnlitical Science. 


The next two weeks will decide the fate of the Snack Bar. 
The action of ODK in assuming the night-time operation of the 
Snack Bar is commendable; however, the success of their action 
rests entirely with the student body. 

ODK, with the support of the Student Advisory Committee, 
is out to prove that the Snack Bar can be run on a profitable 
basis for two and one-half hours during the evening. The other 
participant in this undertaking is the student body — the final 
verdict will be announced by the cash register. 

In short, the assumption that the Snack Bar can be run on 
a profitable basis at night depends upon student patronage for 
verification. Unless the students take this opportunity to support 
the Snack Bar, it will close. In that event, we will have no one 
to blame but ourselves.

KLiming Monday, April lli. This action 
itiulied from a joint meeting of ODK 
.iLul the Student Advisory Committee 
wiih Dr. Gibson and Mr. Dumschoit 
Wednesday night. A special tnecim| 
111 ODK Thursday was hcjd to eon- 
linu the action and to put the plan 
to operation. 

Tentative plans as the Elm wcnl 
to press were for the appointment of 
a student manager selected (rom ODK. 
DilTevent members of ODK will serve 
as manager on a rotation basis. The 
job will be entirely voluntary. It was 
proposed thai the Snack Bar he open 
between the hours ol 8:00 P.M. and 
10:30 P.M. 

The purpose of the move was two- 
fold: (1) to have the Snack Bar opep 
ight for the conicnicnce of the 
students and (2) to prove that i^e 
Snack Bar can be operated <li) a prO 
fitable basis during those hours. 

This action was proposed by £dd!« 
Leonard. President of ODK, .after a 
number of other suggestions had been 
discussed by the .group. Undtfr tHe 
plan, ODK._ which lias the rcspofisibfc 
lity for the allocation of student lunds 
in the absence of student govemmen^, 
will assume complete responsibility for 
any financial loss. incu)r['ed during the 
trial" period- 
Other suggestions iriclilded the in- 
siiiuijon of a subsidy for the Snack 
Bar which would be paid by all re- 
gistere() students of the college as » 
part of the college activities fee; leas- 
ing the Snack Bar as a concession to 
outside commercial interests; the, in- 
stallation of pin-ball and other coin 
machines or games; and, finally, ,a 
conversion o( Hodson Hall to a cafe-* 
teria. This last suggestion, referred ^o 
as the "Johns Hopkins Plan " would 
involve the operation of a joint cafe- 
teria — Snack Bar under one roof. It 
was pointed out, however, thai this 
plan might prove unsaiLsfactory in 
that the heavy "between-class" trade 
would be eliminated due to the in- 
convenient location o( Hodson in rela- 
tion to classrooms. . . 

The joint meeting was called by Dr. 
Gibson ^t the reijuesi ol ODK for the 
purpose of finding some way to reopen 
the Snack Bar at night, while show- 
ing a profit. Mr. Dumschoti, business 
manager of the college, had ordered 
the doors of the Snack Bar closed at 
r.:00 P.M. c-ITective April 2. Ihe rcaspn 
given at that time for the early closing 
was that the amount of sales carried 
on in the evening djd noi cover operat- 
ing costs (or that peiiud. The d'ssat-

To the Editor of the ELM, Sir: 

Concerning the article on Sunday 
movies in last Week's ELM (.April b, 
1951), I would like to make the follow- 

(1) In addition to reasons given to 
the Secretary of the Mt. Vernon Lite- 
rary Society, Miss Newman, for noi 
approving Sunday movies, I stated ai 
the lime that 1 was not certain wheth 
er we could run Sunday movies for 
profit on Ihc campus. Since then, tkc 
Stale's Attorney has told me that Sun- 
day movies are not permissible in 
Kent County at the present. This would 
include movies on the campus 
which a charge was made. In fact, he 
pointed out that movies for profit ai 
any tinw would be subject to the fcde. 

I tax of 20%. 

(2) The ELM article also staled that 
the Mt. Vernon Society had sought 
aid from the ODK — administered s 
dent activities fund in order to bring 
the Barter 1 heatrc here, and (by irri' 
plication) to clear up the deficit from 
last year. It is true that Mt. Vernon 
made this request. It is also true 
that DDK stated that Mt. VemoQ 
must show its books (as all other 
organiutioii.s do, according to ODK 
requirements) and have ihein audited. 
Ml. Vernon has never complied with 
ihj.f simple request. Although student 
members of ODK vote appropriations, 
the records of ODK which I keep as 
Secretary (the position of Secretary 
goes to a faculty member by national 
ODK regulations) show that ODK was/ 
is entirely sympathetic to the Ml. 
Vcruon situation and expressed a will- 
ingness to aid to the extent such aid 
seemed justified, but only after Ml. 
Vernon met the same requirements 
e\acted for all other oiganiiations. 

I was personally dubious of the wis- 
dom of trying to iwing a Barter Theattc 
production this year inasmuch as it 
was a financial failure last year when 
we had appro.fimately one hundred 
more students than now to whom to 
sell tickets. 

As in my letter to Miss Ncwnam. I 
ant to state again that I am ready ai 
any time to help work out something 
for Mt. Vernon along lines desired bv 
hem and consistent with college polic^ 
and commuaity requirencDts.

LacrosseTemn^outs HofstraTAnd^^elphi 


By Ellswoilh Boyd 

Fine Stick Handlers 
After their twin killing of Hofstra College and Adelphi, the 
Shore lacrosse squad was designated by one Long Island newspaper 
as having a polished club possessing fine stick handlers. Coach Char- 
lie Clark believes that Hofstra College has the potentialities of 
developing into a well-rounded group due to their high spirit and 
willing play. It seems that Adelphi employed rough tactics which 
the Sho team soon erased, then forcing the New Yorkers to play our 
style of lacrosse, 

EUiason To Coach Netnien 

Kenney Howard turned in a time of 10 seconds for the hundred 
last Saturday which is an indication that "The Jet" will do a little 
Bying this season. Promising newcomers to the Sho thinclad clan are 
George Eichelberger, halfmiler; Jim Schaffer, pole vaulter: and Bob 
Appleby, sprinter "People like to throw objects," and Lee Cook 
isn't doing bad with that 16 lb. shot put. 

Tom Elliason of Chesterlown, who coached the W.C. nctmen 
last year, has agreed to once again take the reins of the racketeers. 
Tom has been rated "one of the best" and this year's squad is ex- 
pected to match his rating.

Cagers Seen 
As Stickmen 

Of Week 

In a series of weekly articles. The 
Elm will select one athlete who has 
contributed much to Washington Col 
lege in the way of sports and all- 
around athletic ability. This week's 
honor goes to ihe "Bronx Kid", Ken. 
ney Sullivan. 

For an athlete who Aid not partici- 
pate in sporti while in high school, 
Renncy has certainly highly developed 
himself here at Washington College 
as an outstanding basketball and base- 
ball player. Graduating from Cardinal 
Hayes High School In Ihe Bronx. N.Y., 
he has pitched the Shoremen to eight 
baseball viciorlei and held a starting 
berth on the varsity cage squad dur- 
ing his first 2 years here at the Ches- 
tertown school. Sullivan finds ii quite 
a disappointment that the school has 
dropped the diamond spon, however, 
be has decided to pitch for Milling- 
ton on the Eistem Shore until school 
u over, and then play in his home 
town. As for his most Thrilling mo- 
ment in basketball, the modest junior 
will never forget his game winning 
•a shot in -49' against Catholic Un. 
In the fading seconds of the nip and 
tuck contest, guard Sullivan hit the 
nets as the buircr sounded, placing 
the Shoremen on top by one marker. 

Baseball fans may remember the 
Bronx lefthander's mo^t outstanding 
performance here at Kibler Field last 
year when he pitched a calm 6-4 win 
over Johns Hopkins. Kcnuey also led 
Victories over Western Md. and Ran. 
doIph-Macon, slamming a homer in 
the second game of the twin bill 
against the Yellow Jackets.

The la,")! intramural sofiball Icagi

Lacrosse coach Pcrc Qelficld of the 
University of Pennsylvania recently 
stated, 'An accomplished basketball 
plajcr is a potential lacrosse star 
Many controversies ha*e begun over 

fact, however, the Maroon 
Black lacrosse mentor, Charles 
Clark dcfiniiely advocates this theory 
and cites many undisputable reasons 
for doing w. 

Similarities Cited 
Coach Clark believes thai a great 
ng for I similarity lies in the pick-off which 
i must be stationary when executed. It 
is the same in baikctball; if the pick- 
off ii not stationary a foul is usually 
called. Short accurate passes have 
broken up many defenses on the la- 
crosse field as they have on the hard- 
wo>id. "Ihe court >purt sirevscs ic 
houuds a, does the man behind the 
lacrosse goal who picks up loo-^e shots. 
enabling his team to retain their of- 
fensive drive. 

In dcfemc, often times a stick team 
will fall into a zone, usually when 
there is an eMra man on thi 
ing team. Many pla^s may 
set up on the field and completed in 
ct>urt fashion.

to teach a former hardwoodei 

groundwork of the Indian sport. 

A smooth, fast forivard often 
comes a midheldcr and 
center makes a fine defenseraan 
considering defense, many football 
pla>crs have been desirable candidates 
here. The gridiron sport also offers 
many advantages which may. be uti- 
lised in lacrosse. 

With a few basketball plavers, two 
or three football players, and the re- 
mainder of the stick wiclders, it may 
be an easy task for a school to develop 
a tO|moich lacrosse learn. 

The Washington College track coi 
lingent travels to our nation's capii; 
tomorrow afternoon, where Caiholi 
i;ni%ersity has spread the welcome 
mat inaugurating the 1951 Maroon 
and Black cinder campaign. 

Pessimistically viewing the situation, 
coaches Ed Athcy and Dim Moniero 
find it difficult to determine the true 
strength of the Sho'men. Although 
the Cardinals dropped ihcir ir 
dual meet to the Quantico Marines 
last week, results have proven that 
the Rcdbirds hre a well-balanced unit.

returned last week end from Long 
Island, N.Y., where they ama.((ed vic-

(10-2) and Adelphi (17-4). 

In Friday's contest with Hofstra, 
Rip Wood opened the scoring on a 
pass from Graham Menzies. .After 
Buddy Corbctt of Hofstra missed a 20 
fool shot at an open goal. Rip houn- 
her into the net. Eddie Leo- 
nard set Wayne Milncr up for a goal 
a-t the first quarter ended: W.C, 3 
and Hofstra 0. 

As the second stanza opened, Mil- 
ncr scored his second lally. followed by 
Rip with his third. With a 5-0 advant- 
age, Coach Charlie Clark substituted 
"Waeschc, Durry. Lipsiiz^ Cadden, Mc- 
Curdy. Elliot, Curaor, and Dyer into 
the lineup. Dick Cadden quickly scor- 
ed from the side and the score st(x>d 
GO at half-lime. 

Midway in the third quarter, Men-

lally, and added another moments 
later on a pass from Larry Leonard.

Team Picked 

Washington College's varsity basket- 
ball players unanimously selected three 
opposing courtmeni on their 1950-51 
edition of their Mason-Dixon all-oppo- 
nent team. The men drawing a firsi 
team vote from each of the eleven 
Shoremen were Leroy Ishman of Ameri- 
can Un., Gene Janis, Mt. Si. Maiy's, 
and .\rt Press, Western Md. College. 

Rounding out the 6r)t five were 
Ed Doheriy of Loyola College with 
nine votes and Simeon Margolis of 
Johns Hopkins Un. with six. Coach 
Ed Aihey's basketeers picked their 
outstanding opponents from schools 
who. during (he season, held eight vic- 
tories againxi one defeat over the 
Washington College quintet. 1 he only 
victory over the five opposing teams 
was at the exi>ense of AVesiern Md. 
at Chestertown. 

fshinan, voted the best all-around 
opponent, was instrumental in .Ameri- 
University's double win over ihe 
Shoremen. He helped himself to 20 
and 22 points in the two games and 
ihowed added finesse. He later led hij

Saturday afternoon, the local stick, 
men had arrived at Garden City to 
meet the .Adelphi len. 

^V'ashington wasted no time in open- 
ing the scoring as Larry Leonard fired 
one into the net when just 26 seconds 
of ihe game had elapsed. With less 
than a mmutc having passed, Eddie 
Leonard swished one and the score 
stood 2-0. The Sho'men stretched 
their first period lead to 70 on goals 
by Wood f2). Larry Wescott, John 
Grim, and Graham Menzies. 

Although the Sho'men controlled the 
ball mosi of the second frame, the 
scoring was about even. After Mcnrics 
scored for the second time. Chuck 
Waesche rippled the net on a solo 
drive through ihc Adelphi defense. 
Harry McDonald finally broke the ice 
for the losers as he scooped a loose 
ball inio ihe net. making the half- 
time score read W.C. 9 and .Adelphi I. 
Andy Liivinoff opened the third 
round scoring on a fine shot from ihe 
side. Shortly after, Bemie Rudo and 
Wood countered with markers. After 

.McCuIlough and Bill Landon have i taking the face off. Duke Case passed 

jhtaincd posts in these two distancci 
also. Nevcrthele>s, it is impossible for 
three men to score a suHicient total of 
points while other schools are enter- 
ing fiv^c and six diiiancc candidates.

Janis, 6 fix»t I inch center of the

of the wins over \Vashington College. 
Ed Dohertv chipped in 34 points 
while playing a terrific floor game for 
the Greyhounds in the iwo contest^ 

to Larry Leonard who quickly 
verted it into a tally. Moments later. 
Larn' scooped again on a siniiltar 
piav. Wood rang up his fourth tally 
of the afternoon as the gun sounded. 

After Bill Ru'vsell made a fine save 
in the goal, Larry scored on a fine 
shot while being covered by two men. 
Litvinoff scored again followed by 
Wood. Lipsili. and Cadden in rapid 
succession. Bob Fanning wound up 
the afternoon's excitement with a 30 
foot shot from the cenier. making the 
score W.C. 17. .Adephi 1.

25 Candidates File For Election Races 

Faculty Stages 
Variety Show 

Members of ilic faculty anil admiii' 
iscration joined forces on Wednesday 
evening in a Variety Show for the 
bcnclit of the World Student Service 
Fund iirescmed before a caj>»city 
crowd in William Smith Hall. SiN 
different selections were performed 
during the evening's entertainment. 

The highlight of the show was a 
reversal of student - faculty relations 
in which the faculty imitated their 
pri^e students in a typical classroom 
scene at Washington College. The 
"students" consisted of Mr. Padgett, 
Mr, Krishcr, Dr. Gordon, Dr. Knipp, 
Mrs, Simpers, Mr, Arnold, Mr. Meigs, 
and Mr. Bicrly- The role of the pro- 
fessor was taken by Dr. Newlin.- After 
a musical interlude by Dorothy Hop- 
kins and Mr. Henry portraying Jo 
StalTord and Tony Martin, the class- 
room scene was rccnacicd with a facul- 
;ty interpretation of how a class ^hould 
be conducted. 

Something different in the way of 
musical groups on campus, a barber 
shop quartet, comprised of Dr. Ciibson, 
Mr. Rarnctt, Mr, Henry, and Mr, 
Foster, appeared on the progiam dress- 
ed in old-fashioned clothes to sing 
"in the Evening by the Moonlight", 
"Clementine", and "Bicycle Buit for 
Two." Illustrating the last number, 
Dr. and Mrs. Raihje were presented 
riding a tandctn bicycle. The quartet 
was accompanied on the piano by Mrs, 

Two oihtr selections having Wash- 
ington College as their theme were a 
nuisical number entitled "Middle Hall 
at F.ighi" and a skit in Norwegian 
dialect. In the former act, Dorothy 
Hopkins and Mrs. \Valbert portrayed 
two college girls in a dormitory wait 
itig for iheir dates to amve. In thi 
latter, Mrs. Opgrande as Mrs. Larson 
related to Mr. Brnbaker as Uncle 
Chris the experiences she had while 
visiting her daughter at Washington 

Diikc Case served as Master of Cere- 
monies for the Variety Show. Mrs. 
(lark and Mrs. Ford afforded enter- 
[aiiniicnt between acw as twu artists. 
Lighting for the perfonnantc was 
under the direction of the members 
of the Washington Players, Mr. Brn- 
baker handled the faculty arrange- 
ments, and the coinniiitec fi>r the 
World Student Service Fund was in 
ihargt; of ticket Sales and other phases 
of production. 

In an interview after Ihc perform- 
ance Elinor Guslafson, chairman of 
ilic tonunittoe for the \V.S.S.F., express. 
cd the. opinion that the show was a 
complete success. On )>ehalf of the 
student body, she extended thanks to* 
all of the faculty members and wives 
wjin paiiiiipyit'd in ihe progiam.

After a long debate with himself, the Editor-in-Chief of 
the ELM has decided to use the editorial space to publicly 
back one of the candidates for president of next year's Senior 
Class. This candidate is Jim Hacbcl. 

Jim has stated if he is elected President of next year's 
Senior Class there will be no profit whatsoever made on the 
distribution of caps and gowns to the graduates. He feels that 
the honor of being President of the class Li enough. Prior to 
this year, it was said that the distribution of caps and gowns to 
seniors was a lucrative racket for those in charge. This year's 
Senior Class President, Sandy Jones, took a step fo^^va^d by 
proposing in Constitutional form that a maximum of $1.00 
per student be charged. (This was passed by a majority of 
this year's Senior Class). Mr. Hacbcl's proposal is the ultimate. 

Another factor in Jim Hacbel's favor is that he owes no 
allegiance to any political group on campus. Mcist of us realize 
that political machines are a necessary evil, but it is my belief 
that Hacbel will think of his duty to his classmates first and 
not be sidetracked by any "political" maneuvering. 

Still another thing in Hacbel's favor is his record in camp- 
us extra-curricular actJvitio. He has earned the reputation of 
one who gets things done. 

So remember — when you go to the polls Wednesday, cast 
your vote for JIM H.\EBEL and rest assured that you hzvc 
voted for the best man. He gets things done.

Stick Wielders Capture 3rd Straight 

Mason-Dixon Preview 

Now that the Maryland spring sports' program is progressing at 
a rapid pace, \^■e might take a survey of what a few of the other 
Mason-Dixon Conference schools possess in the line of baseball, 
[aerobe,. track, golf, and tennis talent. 

Loyola College, defending league baseball Champions, opened 
tiie '50 campaign by blanking American Un., 10-0 behind the top- 
iwtch pitching of Danny Donohue. Western Md. fashioned a 10-1 
beating over Mt. St. Mary's -as Jerry Phipps limited the Mounts to 
3 hits while collecting the same number for himself at the plate. 
Towson Teachers made it two straight diamond victories of the new 
season as it edged American U., 6 to 3 behind the 5th inning homer 
of basketball star, Bucky Kimmett. 

Lo>x>la Dubs Balto. U. 

Attackman Frank Kimmel tallied four goals and assisted in four 
others as the Greyhound slickmen defeated the Un. of Baltimore, 
13 to 8. Former Shoreman, Bill Hartje held a first string berth for 
the Bees' defense while Joe McFadden and Bob Beasley scored seven 
of the loserj' eight goals. Western Md. was decisively trounced, 17-0 
by Penn State who in turn were outmaneuvered by Navy, 10-1. 

Loyob College not only achieved a baseball victory, but their 
trackmen captured a triangular affair against American Un. and 
Gallaudet, as Greyliound speedster, Joe Paszek, was accidently spik- 
ed. He severed his achilles tendon which unfortunately forces him 
out of this >'ear'3 thinclad picture. Meanwhile, Johns Hopkins was 
thoroughly conquered, 87-39 by a powerful Haverford cinder squad 
of the Middle-Atlantic Conference. 

On The Home Front 

Western Md. won four of six matches to pick up its second 
straight golf victory of the season defeating Dickinson, 6 to 2, while 
the Lo)rT3la College tennis team recorded a 9 to net win over 
American Un. This marked their second success of the 1951 M-D 
tennis schedule. 

The Washington College spring program seems to be progress- 
ing quite successfully as the lacrosse team embarks on their southern 
tour with four straight triumphs under their wing. Meanwhile, the 
track clan encounters the B.O.C. at home tomorrow, after their re- 
cent victory over Pennsylvania Military Academy. Although the net- 
men wfre rained out before their Catholic U. match, they inauini- 
rated their season with a triumph over Towson Teachers. Wc hope 
these many accomplisment^i are indictativc of the future athletic 
achievements of the Sho' teams this spring. 

Delicate Workmanship 

A recent aniclc appearing in the 
magazine ^cctinn of The Sunday Sun 
portrayed the detailed prc<i»ion-likc 
woric which is put into the production 
of a lacrosse stick. The greater pan ol 
the worlds supply is made by Indians 
living in the Si. Lawrence Riier where 
this induMry has been tabbed as one 
o{ the oldeti on the continent of North 

A fuJl year is necessary to transform 
a hicLory tog into a lacTOiise stick in 
which drying, splitting, gouging, steam, 
ing. bending, carving, sanding, boring 
and stringing arc included in the 
Bccewsarj' operations. Each stick must 
be bent by hand, as machinery often 
Splits and snaps ihcm in half. After 
lie Slicks have been shaped and 
Mnoothcd, the holes are txtred for the 
lacings and the Indian women then 
proceed in lacing them which is done 
in delicate complex patterns. Materials 
used here include cowhide, linen 
thread and a special type of gut made 
by the Mohawk Indians ihcmsehes. 
It is a well known fact that no two 
lacros>e sticks are the same and no 
two women will string them the same. 

Once completed, these intricate 
works of art arc shipped to a Baltimore 
sporting goods house and from there 
are distributed in qu.intities of 10,000 
a year throughout the U.S. AViih the 
possible exception of the rug-weaving 
industry, there is no other full-scale 
industry to compare with it anywhere 
in the m()dern world. Therefore, the 
next time you pick up a lacrosse slick, 
look at it carefully — there is a lot 
more to that piece of wood and gui 
than you can ever imagine. 

Pick-up Team 
Loses, 2-1 

Washington College's baseball aspi- 
rants, without a collegiate sport, play- 
ed a team of Philadelphia Athletic 
minor league rookies .it Centrcville on 
Wednesday, .\pril II. The future pro- 
fc-tsioDaU, edged the Collegians 2-1 on 
a two run homer by the giant first 
ba'>eman through the offerings ot 
K.enny Sullivan, in the fourth inning. 

Centreville was the scene of the 
.\ihletics' rookie spring training camp. 
Forty-two young ball players from all 
over the Eastern ;ieciion of the country 
were selecte dand sent through a rug- 
ged eleven day workout. The ^ur- 
vivor« of the training will be sent to 
Class C and D ball clubs of the Athle- 
tics' minor league farm system. 

Playing for the college nine were 
Wes Edwards, catcher; Babe Johnson, 
first base; John Cox. second base; Doug 
Tillcy, ihoristop; John Santuiti, third 
base; Joe Ingarra, left held; Buddy 
lirower, center field; Gene Handsberry. 
right; and Kenny Sullivan and Jim 
Kricgcr_ pilcheis, Sullivan pitched five 
innings, giving up two runs, four hits, 
one walk, and striking out three. 
Krciger hnished the game and allow- 
ed only three hits, two bascj on balls, 
while striking out twt^ 

Santulli clouted two singles to lead 
the school hoys at bat, while Hans- 
bcrty, Cox, Johnson and Ingarra 
contributed base hits. 

Bow To C. U. 

Although the W.C. cindcrkickers 
scored eight first places, their lack 
of depth proved fatal, as Catholic 
University jjcorcd a 71 to 51 dual meet 
victory over the Shoremen last Satur- 
day in the Cardinal stadium. 

Kenney Howard lived up to cxpccia- 
tioru as he racked up 22 points, cap- 
turing firsis in the 100 and 220 yd. 
dashes, Clw low hurdles and the broad 
jump, while tying with Lee Cook for 
second place in the high jump. "The 
Jet's" unbelievable feat was only 
matched once in the history of the 
Shore school when Gibby Young scored 
30 markers in I93,i. 

XwiDey Capture* 4W 

Captain Jim-Twilley ripped off an 
excellent time of 51.7 seconds as he 
edged out Sam Sefeit in the qUartcr- 
raile run. Jim then placed third in 
the half-mile and anchored third in 
mile relay team. Jim Fields of C.U. 
displayed unexpected, yet remarkable 
running ability as he dominated the 
mile and SflO yard rum in the times 
of 4 minutes 42 seconds and 2 minute? 
3 seconds respectively. 

Ells Bo>-d skimmed the 120 yd. high 
hurdler in 17 seconds to gain top 
honors and placed third in the 220 
yd. low hurdles. Tom Benson follow- 
ed Bill Srhmidt of C.t:. across the 
finish hne for secortd place honors in 
the 2 mile run, while placing third in 
the paiftscaking one mile grind. 
Cook Dual Winner 

Lee Cook, participating in five field 
events, walked off with two victories, 
one second and one third place, as he 
chalked up 13 points to the Maroon 
and Black cause. Lee threw ihe 16 lb. 
ihot. 37'1I ' and the di<cu(. M2'9" for 
his finest performances of the dav. He 
followed this with a second place tic 
in the high jump and a third place in 
ihr nmning broad jump. 

Russ Johnson, Redbird Mason-Dixon 
high jump champion, leaped C feci 
which easily scored a first in the high 
jump and then bounded II feet for 
another triumph in the pole vault. 

The cloudy afternoon was termi- 
nated as the home team ran a 5 
minute 33 second one mile relay to 
conclude the dual meet victoriously. 
The Shore relay squad, composed ot 
George Eichelbergcr. Jim Schaifer. 
Howard and Twilley was by no means 
inert running this finale event, as the 
"Capital City " team encumberinglv 
surmounted the visitors' final threat. 

Of Week 

The Connecticut Yankee", as many 
of his friends have tabbed him, is a 
suitable nickname for John Santulli. 
football and baseball spndout for the 
Maroon and Black. This 180 lb., 6 foot 
husky haib from Waterbury, Connecti- 
cut which accounts for half of his 
nickname. The other half may be due 
to the fact that John is a New York 
Yankee rooter "all the way", and strict- 
ly a Joe Dimaggio fan. He is often 
found defending his favorite diamond 
team in hotty conte.icd disputes with 
his roommate, "Swish" Semele. 

The very modest sophomore began 
his athletic career at Wilby High 
School in his home town, where he was 
a three letter athlete participating in 
football, baseball and basketball. 
John's record on the Shore is quite 
commendable as he has played two 
seasons at end on the grid squad and 
last year played the "Hot Corner" for 
Coach Appichella's nine, and U novi 
holding that' position for Millinglun 
of the Bi-State League. 

An absolute baseball addict. John 
experienced his most thrilling moment 
at Randolph-Macon last year when he 
clouted two homers to clinch a Sho' 

Baltimore Out 
For Revenge 

When the Baltimore Olympic Track 
and Field Club invades. Chcsteriown 
tororrow afternoon, they undoubtedly 
will be out to avenge their 78 to 38 
defeat by the Sho'men last season. 

The coach, manager, traintrr and par- 
ticipant of the B.O.C, Bill Jimcson, 
has added coiuidcrable strength to his 
'50 squad. His newest addition to the 
team is Beet-footed Merwin (Tex) 
Carter, a schoolboy seruaiion from San 
Antonio, lexas. Hailed as one of the 
"brightest prospects on the local track 
and field horiion." Carter excelb in 
record-breaking perforEoances in the 
high and low hurdle events. Id addi- 
tion to this, "Tex" is a 12 fool pole- 
vaulier and a 6 foot high jutapcr. 
Ftaging OiMmce Ace 

Frank Flaging, ruancr-up to Filmorc 
Dr)den in the 1951 Del Mar Cross- 
country Championships, heads the 
mile and two mile entries in tomor- 
row's dual meet. Flaging is backed by 
dimJnuitivc George Brown, former 
Ma>on-Dixon Crois-Country champion 
and ex-Loyola distance star. Not to be 
forgotten is Lea Curry, Johns Hopkins 
graduate who has just arrived m the 
U. S. after visiting his home in Eng 

Another Loyola alumnus running 
with the Baltimore Club is Tom Mas 
kell, runner-up to Abe Mendenhall m 
the M-D high and low hurdles racti 
last )ear at Catholic University 

C'lacing the high jump along with 

Carter, is Jerry Uoyle, ex-South \tlan 

tic Champ who gracefully tops the t» 

foot mark displayng little effort 

50' Review 

As we glance into the past 1950 
track campaign, many fans will re- 
member the cinder kicking Sho'man 
Larry Brandenburg and Mickey Hub- 
bard- Ihcie former Maroon and Black 
aces will be clad in B.O.C. togi come 
Saturday running the middle distance 
and sprint e\ents as they did on the 
Washington College championship 
teams of Vi and '50. 

Dashman f^cnney Howard may be 
pushed in the hundred by Stanley 
Becket ot Syracuse University who ii 
co-holder of the 1.C.4-A. 60 yard dash 

It looks 3^ if the Baltimore Club 
is out for revenge tomorrow, but track 
fans can be sure of one thing — 
"come hell or high water" the Shore- 
men will give each B.O.C. ihincJiid, 
"u race to the finish. " 

Net Team 
Is Ready 

Last Saturday the Shore tennis team 
journeyed to Wilmington for their 
trials prior to their first match ot the 
1951 season. The new courts are now 
in top shape and the racketeers can 
swing into action. The match that was 
scheduled with Catholic L'nhersity last 
Monday was postponed to the 2Jth of 
this month due to the muddy condi- 
tions which presailcd last week. 

The number one spot went to Bruce 
Wycoft with Jack Smith and Al Za- 
iosky following in second and third 
positions. The remaining order of the 
trials arc as follows; Bill Brandt, Gary 
Wycoff, Bill Murray and Tony Tonian. 
The doubles have been set up with 
Gary and Smitiv in the No. I set and 
.Murray and Zaiosky in the No. 2.

and a vocalist, will play before anoihei 
capacity crowd of fraternity men and 
their guests. 

The decorating activities has l>een

The Washington College community suifered a great 
shock and a grievous loss this week in the tragic death of 
Ed Rylc. 

Those of us who knew him best are beginiung to realize 
that we have lost a fine friend; his feUow students and class- 
mates will learn, witii each passing day, that they have lost one 
of the best of their number. 

Always conservative in thought and action, Ed provided 
a mature and steadying influence in the organizations to whidt 
he gave so much of his time and effort. Wc of the ELM came 
to rely on Ed; he never failed us. Intensely loyal to these groups, 
and to his friends; unselfish in his attitude and his actions, Ed 
represented the best — as student, as friend, and as a man. 

We'll miss you, Ed. 

Hodson HaU 
Changes By 
Dr. Gibson 

Plans to alleviate the conditions in 
Hodson Hall were revealed to the stu- 
dents by Dr, Gibson in a special meet- 
ing of the student body on Tuesday 

Six defmite measures were presented 
which the students are requested to 
follow. These arc: 

1. Men arc to wear coats and ties to 
the evening meal and Sunday 

2. Girls arc to dress in a becoming 

3. Students are to remain quiet and 
standing during the blessing. 

4. Goo<l maimers are to be used 
throughout the entire meal. 

5. Supervisors arc to be in charge 
during the meal and will handle 
all misconduct. 

6. .\ seating plan will t>e adopted for 
all students, but will not deprive 
them of sitting with friends. 

In an interview after his talk. Dr. 
Gibson said, "1 realize that this is a 
two way affair. While the conduct is 
not what it should be in the dining 
han_ some of the complaints of the 
students have a legitimate basis, and 
studies arc being made of the food, 
cleanliness, and service in Hodson 
Hall." He requested that students re- 
port to the supervisors any conditions 
which they feel are unfavorable, and 
these in turn will be submitted to Dr. 
Gibson to make adjustments where it 
seems necessary to do so. 

Snack Bar 

ODK has started operating the 
Snack Bar from 8:00 to 10:30 P.M. 
on a two week trial basis, beginning 
last Wednesday night. The night ses- 
sions under the student management 
will run until Wednesday. May 9. 

The action was taken following a 
joint meeting of ODK and the student 
advisory board with Dr. Gibson and 
Ml, Dumscliutt. The meeting, request- 
ed by ODK because of student "g'''P«" 
about the Snack Bar closing, resulted 
in the temporary arrangement made 
by ODK. 

In an announcement made before 
the Elm went to press, president Eddie 
Leonard slated, "We want the students 
to realize that the night opening is 
only on temporary basis and that if 
ODK is not successful in this venture, 
the Snack Bar will resume its former 
business hours, closing at 5:00 P.M. 
every afternoon." However, he also 
stated that if the students si 
enough enthusiasm in keeping the 
Sn.-tck Bar open that it will conti 
under student management for the 
rest of the year, provided there is no 
money lost. 

1 he plans for the night management 
of the bar include a manager, picked 
from ODK, to supervise the operation 
each night. Thb will be run on a n>- 
tation basis for the nest two weeks. 
Two student workers will also be on 
hand to wail on customers. The siu- 
dent manager will be on an entirely 
voluntary basis. 


Two Faculty Members, Guest 
Injured Early Wednesday 

Edson R. Ryle, Editor-in-Chief of the ELM, was fatally injured 
in an auto accident at approximately 3:30 A.M. Wednesday moni' 
ing on Route 213 slightly north of Chesapeake City, Injured in (b^'•^ 
crash were Mr. Edward Brubaker, owner and driver of the car and 
an instructor in English at Washington College; Mr. Frederick 
Meigs, college librarian; and Mrs. Evelyn Cross, formerly employed 
by the Snack Bar. 

' According to the State Police, the 
car. a 1928 Packard, was approaching 
Chesapeake City on route 213 from 
(he north. The road was clear at ihat 
hour, and there wa.s "no appreciable, 
curve" at that point. No other vehicles 
were involved, and it is believed that 
Mr. Brubaker had k>st control 
while driving. The car turned over at 
least once, and was stilt partially oW 
the road when found. The occupants 
were rushed to Union Hospital, Elli- 
lon. where Ryle died soon after arrival. 
Mr. Brubaker was reported suffering 
from lacerations of the face and pos. 
siblc head injuries. Mr. Meigs, mosft 
seriously injured of the survivors, was 
s:iid to Be suffering from head in- 
juries and a possible back injury. Mrs. 
Cross also received lacerations of the 
face and scalp. All were reporieil 
Wednesday to be in a "favora))lc 
though painful" condition. X-iaya wcro 
being taken Wednesday to determine 
the extent of the injuries. As late as 
noon AVednesday none of the survivors 
had been told of Ryle's death. The 
car was a total wreck. 

The College was notified early Wed- 
nesday of the accident, and student* 
and faculty were shocked by the sud- 
den tragedy. The ill-fated group had 
left Chcsicnown Tuesday afternoon IQ 
attend a play in York, Pa., as the 
guests of Mr. Brubaker. whose brother 
was one of the stars of the theatrical 
production. They saw the play and 
were returning to the College at the 
time of the accident. 

Dr. Daniel I. Gibson. President of 
Washington College, and Mr. Fred , 
Dunischott, Business Nfan.iger. left for 
Elklon at 9:30 Wednesday morning, 
shortly after learning of the accident. 
They nsiied the injured pas.sengers as 
well as the funeral home to which 
Ryle was taken. At thai time ihf 
funeral arrangements had not hcen 
made, and little was known of the 
circumstances leading to the wreck 
of the injuries suffered

on the world famous Alexander Wooll 
coit and was aptly played by Monty 
Wooley. who also did the show to)

I was spared the shock of seeing my

a gentle push in ihc general direction 
of the dining hall. On m> return from 
there, 1 was led up three flights oi 
creaking stairs to the third Boor. I 
have since abandoned all hope of ever 
going quietly up these same stairs, foi

Rotary Club 

Mr. Edward R. Padgcll, Assistant 
Professor of Hbiory and Political

I "Responsibilities ol Power".

.America i.s one of the few gtcai power* 
existing in (he world today, and as 
iich a nation, she must as.sume re 
ponsibiliiies. first, he pointed nut 
hat .\merica should achieve moral 
leadership, and tccond she should pro- 
mote a preservation of respect for law 
nd justice. Next, .\merica should 
ha\c an cffectisc policy formulation 
d take affirmaiive action with re- 
gard to the execution of these policies, 
the individual citizen, he added 
also has certain responsibilities. As a 
ciiitcn, he must assume the obligations 
that go with ciiiMnship, he should 
participate in Ihc democratic processes, 
and he should make an effort lo under- 
stand (he world trxlay. Mr, Padgett 
further explained that the present con 
dition in Ihe world made it expedient 
for unity of action in the United 
I ^lato. 


A stern looking group of four leans 
on the round maple tabic deep in 
thought. On first sight one might think 
(hey were considering the possible 
faults in Einstein's theory of rtlativity 
or a new liquid that has been dis- 
covered for the removal of hangnails. 
However, these great minds arc pro- 
bably counting to themsehe.s the nu: 
her of diamond tricks that have been 
taken . . , these mental giants ate 
playing Bridge. 

Washington College students seem to 
be noted for their serious bridge play- 
ing . . . Many freshman have been 
told during the summer before they 
enter that they belter learn to play 
bridge if they don'l want to be a social 
outcast when they enter the school. 
On the other hand, if they don't know 
all the fundamentals of the game, it 
is a better life to he the social out- 
cast rather than the poor bridge 

The game, as played in Hodson Hall, 
the Snack Bar. or the dorms, has come 
to consist of, about seven or eight 
people. (Only four holding cards) a 
badly battered deck of cards which is 
probably the remains of Canasta, that 
old fashioned game thai anyone could 
play, a pack -pf- cigarette; handy for 
the nervous player, and a host of facia] 
expressions to be used on partners 
when they have played neither the 
right or wrong card. The three or four 
pectators are there for advisory pur- 
poses and to help with the facial and 
bal expressions. The first step in 
the game is to bid. or announce to 
group how many iricks you think 
can take in some particular suit. 
This process passes from one to anolh- 
r around the table until you base 
irrived ai an agreement with your 
partner on how many tricks you can 
catch. The partners that bid the 
highest name the trump. The plaver 
bid the suit first must play the 
game and his partner puts his hand 
on the table where evenone can 
observe what he has, He is then knoivn 
"The dummy". The procedure has 
o possible results — cither a loud 
groan from the person who must play 
the game with remarks such as "whv 
the world did you raise me" or 
"why didn't you mention tt)3t other 
'. or a squeal of delight in dis- 
ring that the dummy hand on the 
table contains all the uces or six or 
1 trumps which in turn brings 
peculiar glances t<)ward the plaver 
who apparently has absolutely nothing 
his hand worth counting on. 
With these preliminaries over, the 
actual game begins. The sure player 
snaps his card.s on the table and takes 
tricks with one sweep, straightens 
the cards and snaps them again in a 
neat pile in front of him. He gives 
the appearance of having rehearsed the 
hole game, several hours before hand. 
The delibrcator takes several moments 
before he plays his card then usually 
loses the trick anyway. It is during this 
period thai the facial and verbal ex- 
pressions begin. Very seldom arc they 
plimcniary but rather lake the 
Q of raided eyebrows, groans or a 
gnashing ot teeth. This activity con- 
tinues for about ten minutes svhich 
is the approximate playing lime for 
a bridge game. Finally someone has 
svon. or lost depending in how wise 
thev svere in bidding. Ii is at this 
point of the game that Washington 
(Jillcgians are a bit out the the ordi- 
nary. Very rarely is there ever a score 
sheet. All the wisdom and mental 
exercise have been used for "sheei 
relaxation" instead of a good score. 

Perhaps our card players were just 
practicing iheir bridge emotions to 
be used when they arc out in the 
world milking their own way and 
joining bridge clubs. The husbands 
who find ih;ti their wives were "bridge 
olaiers" at Washington College will 
no doubt find themselves without sup- 
per numerous times as their spouses 
are out to "that bridge luncheon." 
Ihc wives on the other hand will 
probably reluctantly give permission 
lor the old boy lo go out for a night 
of poker . , . Poker liecaase none of his 
pals played bridge at Washington Col- 
lege. Well, its oidy a game and jusi 
played for fun? . . ■ ai least in played 

for fun in most localities, but at Wash- 
ington College if you hear "Bridge, 
anyone?" check yourself before you

Final Event Decides Track Meet 

THE Scoreboard 

By Ellsworth Boyd 

Howard Receives Bid 

The highly publicized and talent laden Penn Relays being run 
in Philadelphia today and tomorrow, have a special significance to- 
ward Washington College this year. The Maroon and Black's rapid 
sprinter, Kenny Howard, has received a bid to run in the invational 
100 yard dash being held tomorrow afternoon. The field is loaded 
with top-notch sprinters throughout the East, headed by Arthur 
Bragg of Morgan State who recently participated in the Pan- 
American Games. 

The Shore relay team is not running, as seven members of the 
track squad are journeying to Baltimore to run in the inaugural 
Baltimore Relays being held at Clifton Park. Seven other teams are 
entered, the host being the Baltimore Olympic Club. The carnival 
comprises five relays and eight individual events, with medals being 
awarded the winning relay teams and first, second and third in 
individual events. 

Sideline Notes 

Although the Shore stickmcn were edged by the Blue Devils 
last Saturday, the high spirit of our squad was praised by Duke 
coach, Jack Persons. The Southern ten was highly talented indivi- 
dually and held depth within its weil-balanced unit, howevtr, our 
team play was by no means excelled by the Southerners. 

Rod Boyce, outstanding Blue Devil stickman who consistently 
dented the Shore goal, formerly played with Graham Menzies at 
Gilman High School in Baltimore. Menzies was Boyce's feeder when 
they both starred in the prep ranks. 

A highlight of the contest was Bill Bonnett's third quarter score. 
Bonnett ,Sho'defenseman, raced the length of the field and whipped 
a shot toward goalie Don BafTord that almost took him into the 
net with the ball. Bafford was also a former high school star when 
he played with Bonnett, Kabernagel, and Jackson at City College. 


The last two weeks )\3s seen the in- 
tramural Softball schedule otT to a 
fine start. Somei^ei leads the league, 
but Theia Chi and the Day Students 
also nave strong teams. Coach .Appi- 
chella ha:t announced that because ol 
the spell of bad weather, no rained 
out games would be rescheduled.

Entering the final doubles match of 
the afternoon, the team score being 
tied. 4-4, the Shormen inaugurated 
their neiv campaign by edging the 
Towson "Knights", .I to 4. Only 
through the combined efforts of Jack 
Smith and Gary WyckoR was the vic- 
tory sustained. 

Smitty and Gary dropped their first 
set, 4-6 but evened things up 6-4 
the following. Their opponents, Jack 
Downes and Gerry Wittstall fought 
vainly as the Sho'men clinched thei 
victory, 6-3 in the final set. During 
the singles matches, Bruce Wyckoff 
displayed court finesse as he toppled 
Ai Schleuncr, 6-0. 6-0. "Biscuits" Brandt 
was next in line to achieve a triumph 
as he quelled Jack Luzman in two 
straight sets. Gary Wycknff breezed to 
an individually successful afternoon as 
he romped over Bob Lane 6-1, and

An overconfident, yet unaware Bal- 
timore track team was defeated 62 to 
55 last Saturday on Kibler field as the 
deciding factor of the contest was not 
disclosed until the last event on the 
thirteen card program. Like a "bolt 
out of the blue" invincible Kcnney 
Howard leaped 22'10i/;" into the air 
amid the home crowd's cheers, as the 
hopes of the Baltimore Olympic CInb 
faded with the setting of the sun. 

The score being tied 54-,54, Ken 
Howard and Lee Cook took first and 
second places in the broad jump to 
clinch a well deserved, yet closely com- 
peted victory. 

Carter Leads B.O.C 

Coach Bill Jimeson_ who ran 2nd 
and 3rd in the high and low hurdles, 
added strength to this year's team, 
and invaded the Shore with a mena- 
cing contingent which ran one of 
the closest dual meets that the Ches- 
terlown school hai ever participated in. 
The meet was dominated by two men. 
Ken Howard of Washington and Mer- 
win 'Tex" Carter of the B.O.C. Carter, 
a former schoolboy track star from 
San Antonio, Texas, a modest athlete 
and a Southern gentleman, led off the 
afternoon's festivities by placing first 

the pole vault and high jump. His 
jumps were 10'6" and 5'6' in each 
event. "The Jet" matched this with 
ctoriea in the 100 and 220 yd. dashes 
reeling off times of 10 second flat and 
22 seconds flat which was quite re- 
markable considering the track con-

As Tom later explained, "I was only

run a 2 mile race before, took third 
place through his admirable stride and 

Mickey Hubbard,

place in this event. 

8 New Records 
Other Shoremen scoring points were 
Frank Byham in the hundred. Jim

jump and high hurdles and Rod Ware 
in the high jump. 

The di.scus was thrown llI'2'/2" by

Scoring for Washington were Eddie

The two teams played on even tennt 
in all but the third quarter- In the 
first frame, each team scored twice, 
and once in the second stanza, Tht 
third frame was where the locals fell 
behind on goals, by Jim Whitescarvcf 
and Boyce. 1 he scoring was again ever) 
in the final stanza. 

Duke Deep In Reserrei 

The Duke game was one of the mm\ 
well played games of the year for both 
teams, according to coaches, playen, 
and spectaion. As in the Navy game, 
however, Washington found itself up 
against a more experienced foe with 
numeral reserves. The local tean 
slackened trying to even tht 
score in the final quarter in which sev«. 
ral late shots missed by inches. Two 
fouls committed by Shoremen in tb« 
early part of the third quarter led to 
quick Duke goals, one of which 
turned out to be the decisive factor. 

Playing exceptionally well for Wash* 
ington were Ray Wood, All-American 
candidate, and Capt. Ed Leonartl, 
Duke Case, Bonnett Kabernagel. Wet

considerably in the closing minute)

Versatile Kanny Howard led the 
winners to their initial track victory 
of the campaign as he garnered four 
to total 20 markers for the after- 
. Breasting the tape in the 100

hurdles, "The Jet" concluded the dual

Other dual event victories were 
achieved by distance ace, Tom Benson, 
Jack of all trades" l,ee Cook 
and "timber topper" Ells Boyd. Ben- 
son led all contenders in ihe mile and 
two mile grinds followed by Don Drill 
of P.M.C. and Jack ^tcCulloogh of | 
W.C, who trailed him to the tape in 
both races. Lee C. threw the shot

aged to slip in a second in the dis-

mendable 16 point total at the finale. 
Loose-jointed Ellsworth Boyd breezed 
to a high hurdle success over Bob 
Richardson of P.M.C. and followed

edge out the same opponent who was 
again a close seciind.

quarters. Nick Cavini of the Quakers,

the javelin 150 feet. However, this 
event is not included in Ma5<m-Dixon 
competition. Mel Littleton and Steve 
Masirianna threw the spear near 
Cavini's mark as they drew second and 
third places in the event.

W.ishington College opened its ,qu^

convincing victory over Lehigh Uni-

Rip Wood led the way i* the Sho'- 
men rolled to their fourth consecutive 
win after dropping their opener to 
Navy. His five tallies boosted his 1931 
output to 24 for five games. 

The locals took advantage of the 
weak Lehigh defense earlv. pouring in 
four markers in the firM (wc minutes 
of the first quarter. ^Vixid chalked up 
three of these. 

In addition to Rip's five, Dick CaiJ.

The Society of Sciences, last night, 
held its Fifth Annual Science Exhibit 
in Dunning Hall. The exhibit, which 
Itegan at 6:30 P.M,, featured students 
exhibits, a movie and a lecture dem- 
onstration by Dr. Richard M. Sutton. 
Dr. Sutton, who was very well re- 
ceived by the crowd, gave an interest- 
ing lecture-demonstration entitled, 
"Recreations in Mechanics", featuring 
several ilcmonst rations of physical 
phenomena and law. Dr. Sutton, who 
received his doctorate from the Califor- 
nia Institute of Technology, is a form- 
er national chairman of the Commit- 
tee on Demonstrations in Physics tor 
the American Association of Physics 
Teachers and is well known as the 
author of the book "Demonstrations in 

The movie, "Doctor in Industry", 
was shown t>efore and after Br. Sui 
ton's address. This film is about as 
close to the Hollywood article as 
science movies generally get, and it 
proved to be verv interesting and in- 
formative, while at the same lime 
quite entertaining, dealing principally 
ilh the trails and tribulations of a 
young doctor who decides to go into 
nduslrial work. 

As always, the main attractions of 
the evening were the various projects 
hich were set up and demonstrated 
by the science students. 

Highlight of the chemistry exhibit 
was a demonstration of Chemin fluores- 
cence, set up and demonstrated by Lee 
DeWiti, In this demonstration two 
solutioiLs, when poured together, pro- 
duced a mysterious glowing solution. 
AVhen this was then poured on a 
cloth and the cloth rung out, droplets 
of "fire" seemed to drip forth. Water 
purification, organic synthesis, and an 
analysis of carlion content in stc-cl were 
iilso shown. 

The biology exhibit, as always, a 
popular on, was this year in the hands 
of Bob Stuck, who in addition to 
bowing experiments with frogs and 
turtles, managed to keep everyone bus^ 
gelling his blood typed or lung capa- 
ity measured. 

Betty Brundagc. chairman for the 
nathcmaiics exhibit, had a number 
if interesting designs and puzzles lo 
keep the visitors guessing, and this 
department featured a model bridge 
vhich was rigged with springs to 
ihow where major stresses occur. 

The Physics department's show, run 

by Dick Lewis, was another big crowd 

gciier, and everyone seemed to be 

iiete.'ted in iht Gicyer C<iiinicr the 





various motors and engines, the static 
electricity machine and the display 
of gas blled discharge tubes, to men- 
tion only a few items. 

Last, but not least, we found the 
psychology exhibit, ably chairraanned 
by Helen Roc, who chose "Psychology 
in Vocational Guidance" as the theme 
for this year's show. Shown vi'crc test 
results (rom campus surveys and vari- 
ous vocational tests which the visitors 
could try. Especially interesting was 
the demonstration of a lie dcctector. 

Bob Brink, president of the Science 
club, estimated that over 330 people 
had attended the exhibit and added 
that he wished to extend his thank: 
lo ihe many people who. by their 
coiitribution of time and effort, had 
made the show possible, and, in parti 
cuiar, to thank the various chairmen 
of the departmental exhibits. Betty 
Irene Ivens, who handled publicity, 
Elinorc Gustafson, secretary of the 
club, Paul Sadick, general chairman, 
and Dr. Voelker, faculty advisor to the 

Immediately following the exhibit 
an informal party was given in Dun- 
ning Hall for the club members and 
faculty. ,

By jaefc W. Henry 
Under the capable direction of 
Phyllis Sciii. the Washington Players 
concluded their 1950-1951 season wiih 
what was, in the opinion of this re- 
viewer, their most delightful presenta- 
tion of the year — Kaufman and 

With the exception of several por- 
tions of the second act, in which the 
pace was noticeably slowed, the pro- 
duction was well-balanced and fast- 
moving. After three previous exposures 
to amateur productions of this comedy 
it was especially pleasing to find a 
new and fresh <limension imparted to 
the concluding act, by far the mtwv 
enjoyable act. 

As .Sheridan Whiteside, the man who 
came to dinner and stayed, Toifl- 
Lowe marked his debut with The 
Players with a remarkable and effca- 
ive performance. Faced witii the prob- 
lem that in the minds of most 
theatre-goers Sheridan Whiteside has 
become virtually synonomous with the 
name of Monty Woolley, Lowe at- 
tempted to overcome this han<licap 
by presenting us with a personality 
creation. A refreshinj* 
change to .say the least, even though 
on one or two occasions he appearetf 
to border on Ihe typical Whiteside 

.Although the personality of Sheri- 
dan Whiteside dominates every scene, 
especially capable perform.inces were 
turned in by: Eleanor Dryden as the' 
secretary, Maggie Cutler. whoSe sara- 
casm managed to penetrate even the 
toughened hide of Whiteside; Howard 
GclHs, as Beverly Carlton, who handled 
a dilficuU British impersonation with 
success; Jim Mcicalf as the 
Leonard. Business Manager; Clen [ *^o"fl-l'c boy photographer. Richard 
Cray, Senior Editor; Rod Faulkner. | Stanley; Paul Miller as the eccentric 
Feature Editor; John Grim, and Edith i ''rofeMor Metz; Joe ingarra portraying 
. Ivens, Sports Editors; Pete Lohman,! '^^ uninhibited Banjo in his own un- 
Art Editor: and Constantine Tonian, I '"*'''^"'^'' fashion; Glen Cray as the 
Photography Editor. '
